Pacific Fire Training
Passenger Service Emergency Response
For BNSF and Amtrak, nothing is more important than the safety of our passengers and employees. And when the rare incident involving passenger trains does occur, the safety of firefighters, police and other emergency responders is our priority as well. This training video shows how to respond safely and effectively to emergency situations involving passenger trains.

Fire Service Hydraulics
This month we're doing a lot with pump pressures and flows. Attached below are links to different friction loss charts and apps. The friction loss cards have some of the "Street Smart" calculations. The chart listed is the same that is currently on most district apparatus. The two apps are not the only ones out there, they are just two of more user friendly and seem to have accurate information. The Elkhart app is free and the Flashover app has a one time cost of $1.99.
This month as we look at nozzles and flows, we also have discussed the differences in nozzle types. Below are a couple of video illustrations that show how water flows through different nozzle types.
