  • Fire Hydrant & Pump Cutaway for Ohio Training School

    Posted on February 10th, 2017 admin No comments

    CalCo Cutaways completed a project for a fire training school in Ohio. We created a fire hydrant cutaway and a motorized pump cutaway, and put each one on its own rolling stand so it’s easy to move and transport when used for training.

    The pump was rescued from an old fire truck. Full color coding was painted on the pump cutaway to show the water flow path. The pump panel was included to allow for the actuation of the valves. The pump cutaway is also motorized to show what a driver that’s connected to the pump looks like when it’s activated.

    Firefighters use fire hydrant and pump cutaways to educate and empower their teams. These tangible training models provide firsthand instruction to firefighters so they learn and have a better understanding on the internal structures of hydrants and pumps—two of the most important tools firefighters use on the job. These cutaways provide hands-on experience and help firefighters visualize how a hydrant and pump’s internal components look and fit together. By knowing how each one works, firefighters can boost their confidence and strengthen their efficiency in the field.

    It is here!!

    Fire Departments have had great success using our Hydrant Cutaway Banner for training and to meet ISO standards.  We have had many requests for a Fire Pump Cutaway Banner and we are pleased to be able to offer this new banner to help meet those training needs.

    The Fire Pump Cutaway Training Banner is 6 ft tall by 2 ft wide and is in full color.  It comes with a portable stand but it can also be mounted on a wall.  The banner is vinyl so it will last for years.

    The cutaway banner will give your trainees a clear idea of how the fire pump operates.  There are multiple cutaway sections and enlargements so your instructor can show the details of the pump.  This banner may be able to fulfill the ISO requirement for a fire pump cutaway.  While the final decision ultimately lies in your inspector’s hands, many times this type of solution is valid, and at a fraction of the cost, only $195.00 with a portable banner stand included!

    Be sure to check with your inspector or local ISO/State (or whichever organization is running the inspections) to see if this solution will qualify for your location, and then call 847-639-3858 to order. Our hydrant banner, seen below,  is available too.
