This section covers the necessary operating instructions,  in addition to those previously covered that are neces- sary for the components of the Twin Agent 4x4 Firefighting Truck to function properly under unusual conditions, such as in extreme heat or cold and in dusty and sandy areas. 2-28.  OPERATION IN INTERMEDIATE COLD (TO -25° F). The  truck  is  not  designed  for  firefighting operations below 32°F (0°C).   If  the  vehicle is  left  in  temperatures  below  freezing,  it  is recommended    that    the    AFFF    agent    be drained (paragraph 2-23). When operating in an intermediate cold climate,  take the necessary precautions to prevent the truck from freez- ing. 2-29.  OPERATION IN EXTREME HEAT. When operating in extreme heat,  particular attention must be paid to the lubrication and cooling system of the fire truck.  Protect the fire truck from the direct rays of the sun as much as possible. 2-30.  OPERATION IN DUSTY OR SANDY AREAS. When operating in dusty or sandy areas,  keep all lubrication points clean and well lubricated.  Lubricate sparingly, but more frequently than under normal conditions.  Wipe fittings thoroughly before applying grease.  Clean all oily or greasy surfaces.  Service the engine air cleaner,  breather and oil filter more frequently than under normal con- ditions.  Service the radiator,  fuel tank,  and fuel filters. 2-31.  OPERATION UNDER RAINY OR HUMID CONDITIONS. When operating under rainy or humid conditions,  the high humidity causes rusting or corrosive action on exposed metal surfaces.  Coat all exposed metal surfaces with engine oil or appropriate protective coating.  Keep the fuel tank as full as possible to eliminate condensation. 2-76
