Annual Hose Testing (click this title to see pictures of this annual event)

Every year  in the spring, members  of the El Dorado Fire and Rescue Service  take the time to pressure test all of its supply (5-inch) and attack (various smaller sizes) hoses. Hoses are attached to a pump and pressurized to a prescribed pressure. Hoses with leaks are either repaired or retired. This process helps guarantee  that the EFRS will be able to deliver water without problems to a fire when it is needed.
