Pumping and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition covers the Pumping Apparatus Driver / Operator Handbook, plus an additional 5 chapters relevant to aerial apparatus.
These chapters are devoted to driver/operators responsible for operating fire apparatus equipped with aerial devices. These include aerial ladders, aerial ladder platforms, articulating elevating platforms, telescoping elevating platforms and water towers.
Personnel on departments that operate both types of apparatus now only need one manual and one curriculum for training. Students only need one exam prep to prepare for testing.
The information in this manual aids the driver/operator in meeting the objectives found in NFPA 1002, Standard for Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications 2014 edition.
Chapters 2 and 3 are especially beneficial for all driver/operators: Inspection and Maintenance and Safety and Operating Emergency Vehicles.
