Palmetto Fire Apparatus realized early on the necessity for a full pump testing facility.We have installed a 14,000 gallon in ground drafting tank. The design allows drafting from either one or two sides simultaneously. Having the ability to draft with two hard suctions allows us to test 1750 and 2000 GPM pumps.
When a used fire truck arrives at our facility the first thing it receives is a full annual test. In addition, we have the ability to pump test trucks with a customer prior to taking delivery. We also have the ability to meet the NFPA requirements following extensive repairs. Currently Palmetto Fire Apparatus is performing over 50 annual pump tests for our fleet maintenance contracts and surrounding Departments.
