1. Drive slowly (not to exceed 5 mph) through standing water to prevent damage to the equipment. The vehicle must not be driven through water deep enough to reach any part of the engine.
  2. Brakes should be tested immediately after operating through deep water to check for water in the brakes. If the brakes are wet, use the brakes lightly while driving in a low gear to heat and dry them.
  3. If the brake condition is poor and does not improve after testing, call the dispatcher or supervisor.
