Continuing Education - AFP Techs Attend Chubb Loss Control University
10/11/2010 - 8:00am

On November 10, AFP employees traveled to Warren, NJ to participate in continuing education training at the Chubb Loss Control University.  Technicians and supervisors attended the one day "Automatic Fire Pumps" course alongside other vendors as well as AHJs from NYC, NJ and surrounding areas.  The first half of the day was spent reviewing installation, inspection and maintenance of fire pumps per NFPA 13, 20 and 25.  After lunch, technicians gained hands-on experience by performing churn tests and full annual flow tests on Chubb's two in house fire pumps and controllers (including a full diesel fire pump setup).

This course allowed technicians to review best practices for pump inspection/testing/maintenance and offered some new insights into preventative maintenance and troubleshooting.  Taught by the very employees at Chubb who field assess fire pumps, technicians got an invaluable look into how AHJs approach fire pump and fire sprinkler code enforcement.
