OPERATION IN HUMID CONDITIONS
General. High humidity causes a rusting and corrosive action on exposed metal surfaces. Coat all exposed metal
surfaces with oil or appropriate protective coating.
Fuel System. Keep the fuel tank as full as possible to eliminate condensation. Replace the fuel filter every 12,000
OPERATION IN SALT WATER AREAS
General. The deterioration and corrosion of exposed metal is greatly accelerated in salt water areas. Coat all
exposed metal surfaces with an approved lubricant. When the fire truck has been sprayed with salt water, wash down
with fresh water.
Pumping Salt Water. DO NOT use salt water except in case of EXTREME EMERGENCY. At the earliest opportunity
after pumping salt water, flush the water pump and piping thoroughly with fresh water. After flushing drain the pump.
