Fire Protection Hydraulics & Water Supply Lab

FST 219L

Course Description

Prerequisite: FST 211 and MTH LEVEL 4 and Concurrent enrollment in FST 219. Applies theoretical knowledge in a lab environment, through hands-on operation of pumping apparatus. (0-15)

Outcomes and Objectives

Demonstrate and apply the principles of forces that affect movement of water at rest and in motion through the application of mathematics and physics.

Objectives:

  • Apply mathematics and physics to the movement of water in fire suppression activities.
  • Determine the type of support required for occupancies containing sprinkler/standpipe systems.
  • Through hands-on maneuvering, demonstrate the controls and operation of pumping apparatus.
  • Achieve sufficient skills to deliver correct pressure and flows to a variety of fire stream appliances.
