Nobody on the Brayton Fire Training Field during the annual Industrial Fire School in July knows the pump alley project better than retired Exxon firefighter Harold Broom. He has served as an instructor on the prop for 10 years, graduating to module leader for the course four years ago. This project involves sets of double pumps that represent seal and flange leaks. A meter loop, simulated compressed air cylinder, and chain-operated valves to operate overhead/elevated flange leaks add to the complexity of this project. Students learn the importance of multiple hose line coordination and teamwork and water pattern techniques that are an integral part of this training.
