FSA 206 - Fire Protection Hydraulics and Water Supply
3 Lecture Hours
Prerequisites: FSA 102 or equivalent and demonstrated competency of high school level algebra or equivalent
This course provides students with the theoretical knowledge to identify the principles of the use of water in fire protection. Additionally, students will apply hydraulic principles to analyze and solve water supply problems.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Apply water hydraulic principles.
- Calculate water hydraulics as it relates to fire protection.
- Identify design principles of fire service pumping apparatus.
- Analyze community fire flow demand criteria.
- Define principles of forces that affect water, both at rest and in motion.
- List and describe the various types of water distribution systems.
- Discuss various types of fire pumps.
- Water as an extinguishing agent
- Math review
- Fire streams
