Brewster and Surrounding Fire Departments Conduct Annual Hose Testing

During the week of October 16 the Brewster Fire Department along with the Harwich, Orleans, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown Fire Departments conducted their annual hose testing as mandated in National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standards.

Fail Safe, which is a nationally recognized hose testing company was hired to conduct this regional testing program. Offering this program in a regional format with the one vendor allowed each of the involved communities to significantly reduce the cost of completing this mandated testing. Fail Safe employees completed testing on over 40,000 feet of fire hose during the week long program.

The Brewster Fire Department would like to thank the Director of the Captain’s Golf Course Mark O’Brien for allowing these fire departments the opportunity to utilize the course parking lot for these tests.
