School for Motor Apparatus Operators
“Motor and Pump Operators’ School,” is being held at the Fire College of the New York Fire Department. The curriculum consists of instruction and study of the construction, care and operation of motor fire apparatus, motors and pumps, high and low pressure hydrants, thawing devices, the relation of fire pump service in buildings equipped with standpipe and sprinkler systems to the fire pumps on apparatus, and the delivery of effective fire streams. Cross sections of motors, pumps and other essential parts will be used to give individual instruction.
Those who show sufficient interest during the course and who pass a satisfactory examination will be designated as chauffeurs and pump operators through the special orders of the Department.
Arkport, N. Y., has received new fire apparatus purchased at a cost of $6,000. It is the result of agitation which followed the loss of life by fire last year.
