Performance testing is not only required by the NFPA once a year but it is also required after major repairs have been done to any part of the pump or the major components of the pumping system.

Fire pump performance testing on a yearly basis will prove highly beneficial to those who adhere to it. Not only will the department be in compliance with the standard, it will have something even greater-peace of mind, knowing that the truck’s pump will perform when it is needed the most.

A fire scene is not the place to find out that your truck's most important component will not deliver rated capacity or pressure when it is needed the most.
