The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are pleased to bring you Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator: Pump, Aerial, Tiller, and Mobile Water Supply, Third Edition. This third edition of Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator has been thoroughly updated to serve as a complete training solution that addresses pump operation, safe driving techniques, tiller and aerial apparatus operation, and water supply considerations. From basic apparatus maintenance to fire pump theory to advanced hydraulic calculations, this single manual covers everything a fire service driver/operator needs to know.

Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator: Pump, Aerial, Tiller, and Mobile Water Supply, Third Edition meets and exceeds the job performance requirements (JPRs) of Chapters 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10 of the 2017 Edition of NFPA 1002, Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications. In the 2017 edition, the requirement that a pumper driver/operator be certified to the Fire Fighter I level was removed. However, JPRs from NFPA 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications were added so pumper driver/operators are able to operate outside of the immediate dangers to life and health (IDLH), and still have an understanding of the following Fire Fighter I topics:

  • Fire Department Communications (NFPA 1001: 5.2.1, 5.2.2, 5.2.3)
  • The General Knowledge Requirements (NFPA 1001: 5.1.1)
  • Responding on an Apparatus to an Emergency Scene (NFPA 1001: 5.3.2)
  • Connect a Fire Department Pumper to a Water Supply (NFPA 1001: 5.3.15)

Additional appendices include an excerpt of NFPA 1002 and corresponding correlation matrixes to substantiate all JPRs that are covered and documented in the Third Edition. Comprehensive and updated content in this edition includes:

  • Nozzle reaction and how to calculate it
  • Expanded coverage of pump anatomy and pressure control devices
  • Content that addresses vital parts of NFPA 1901, Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus and NFPA 1911, Standard for the Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Automotive Fire Apparatus
