A firefighter with the Salina Fire Department uncouples fire hoses Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot of the Bicentennial Center. Each year, all of the fire hoses in the department’s inventory must be pressure tested. Water is pumped into the supply hoses at 200 pounds of pressure for five minutes. The testing will continue over the next few weeks.
