"Agreed, Alan. I've always preached that, but the guy wanted to know about pushing fire with a hose stream, which in my opinion is pretty negligible compared to delaying extinguishment. TJP"

Hey Dave, I moved out of Hyattsville Christmas of 2002.  Been in SC ever since.  I used to be able to get back fairly often, but then marriage and kids happened.  I was up there in August 2010 for a few days.  I am trying to get up their for Fire/Expo this year but we'll see.

 

If I can make it up there, We should hook up and talk shop.  Stay SAFE.

Hi Dave
If you allow comments on the blog portion of your question as well as for the Start Water thread they will be in two places and I don't think they can be moved.
