Education and awareness are critical components of the NFPA mission to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life. One of the best ways for us to keep the mission moving forward is to team up with other organizations that share our passion for safety and progress. This week, NFPA Staff (Erik Holden and Matt Klaus) along with NFPA Instructor Bob Caputo spent two days at SPP Pumps training lab in Norcross, Georgia. SPP Pumps is an international leader in the fire pump industry, that maintains a state of the art, hands-on training facility is equipped with fully-functional fire sprinkler systems, fire pumps (diesel and electric) and a complete range of fire sprinkler industry components. Spp Our host, SPP Pumps Director of Sales James Hunt and the SPP Pumps team(pictured), was gracious enough to allow NFPA the use of their lab to film a series of training videos on how fire pump churn tests and annual flow tests are conducted. Understanding how to conduct these tests, which are mandated by NFPA 25, is vital to ensuring that the fire pump will function as designed during a fire event. SPP Pumps training lab provided the perfect environment for developing training videos on these important concepts.
