What's New in the Third Edition?

Brought to you by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), the third edition of Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator: Pump, Aerial, Tiller, and Mobile Water Supply has been thoroughly updated to serve as a complete training solution that addresses pump operation, safe driving techniques, tiller and apparatus operation, and water supply considerations.

The comprehensive content in the Third Edition:

  • Meets and exceeds the job performance requirements of Chapters 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 of the 2017 Edition of NFPA 1002, Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications.
  • Covers pump anatomy and pressure control devices, nozzle reaction and how to calculate it, and 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.
  • Includes a Daily/Weekly Check Sheet for an overview on what to inspect and how to ensure your apparatus is at operational readiness


Did you know?

In the 2017 Edition of NFPA 1002, the requirement that a Driver/Operator be certified to the Firefighter I level was removed and job performance requirements from NFPA 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications were added. This means that driver/operators who operate pumpers and mobile water supply apparatus are able to operate outside of the immediate dangers to life and health (IDLH), but must have an understanding of specific Fire Fighter I topics.
