This text was written to teach hydraulics by addressing the underlying science; however, in a logical, systematic manner using simplified formulae with each chapter building on the last in a basic, understandable approach. The book is ideal for college level courses correlating with the course objectives of Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education, but also can be used by fire departments and fire academies to train pump operators. The simplification of this complex subject including the up-dating of formulae makes the text useable for rookie or veteran firefighters. Additions to this edition include: steps of pump operation, testing fire pumps, calculating hose lengths for foam educators, and an expanded rural water supply section. It is also an excellent resource for promotional examinations.
