  • "I reviewed Fire Service Pump Operator: Principles and Practice and think that that this is an excellent manual for firefighters wanting to become pump operators or those wanting to expand their knowledge. This manual is a must for anyone wanting to become a pump instructor.

    The student workbook is a great manual for anyone wanting to get started with pump operations. I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing these manuals as they are written in a manner that supplies all the information needed about pumps and the formulas are much easier to calculate."
