2-32. OPERATION IN SALT WATER AREAS.
When operating in salt water areas, deterioration and corrosion of exposed metal surfaces is greatly accelerated.
Coat all exposed metal surfaces with engine oil. When the fire truck has been partially immersed or sprayed with
salt water, wash down the fire truck thoroughly with fresh water.
2-33. OPERATION IN SNOW.
Operating in snow presents special problems due to snow collecting and freezing on metal surfaces. At the earli-
est opportunity, remove snow from top of cab, equipment compartments, and twin agent firefighting system.
2-34. OPERATION IN MUD.
When operating in mud, particular attention must be paid to the over-all cleanliness of the fire truck. At the earli-
est opportunity, wash the fire truck and remove the mud.
2-35. OPERATION AT HIGH ALTITUDES.
Operation at high altitudes presents special problems due to lower atmospheric pressure and a wide difference in
temperatures. Protect the fire truck at all times from the lowest anticipated temperature.
