The Chickasha Fire Department will be conducting their annual pump testing on all engines and ladder trucks on September 8th. The testing ensures pumps can pump at capacity when required and an accurate measurement of intake and discharge pressures are available.
The testing is completed using a third-part vendor to insure accuracy. The testing will be done at Lake Burtschi, since testing must be done from a source which ensures the pumps maintain adequate seals and water can move through the entire pumping system. Each test takes approximately two hours to complete.
