Training objectives:
1. To describe a typical water shuttle and show the equipment involved. The program defines the term “water shuttle” and describes the equipment needed to operate a water shuttle. The terms, “dump site” and “fill site” are defined, and viewers are shown how to select a good dump site and identify good locations for fill sites. The safety considerations when selecting a travel route are presented. Finally, the program shows how to recognize and avoid adverse driving and road conditions.
2. To show basic procedures for setting up a water shuttle. The basic procedures for setting up a water shuttle are shown. These include: how to set up at the fill site for hydrant or draft positioning; setting up hoses between the pumper and the tender at the fill site; and various methods of getting water to the attack pumpers at the dump site.
3. To describe a basic relay pumping operation. The program defines the term “relay pumping” and presents the equipment used in relay pumping.
