Thanks Tony, it helps but manpower is our issue. 3-4 man engines, normally 3 with the officer. What you said about estimating the stretch is great. I'm going to start measuring areas next week, when we start cranking hydrants. I want to know the strech in advance and maybe get the stretch listed on our dispatch information. One location a day, Garden apartments one day, our 5 story hi-rise another, you get the picture Bro. I will discuss this more with you in Indy, if you have time Bro!
Barry, Thanks Bro! I'm working with my company to work alot of this out through Brothers ideas, different techniques learned over the years, etc. We are going to start measuring things on Thursday.Thanks for the information. We run 3 man engines, including me, the majority of the time, so it is a bit tricky. I working to take the guess work out of it, so the entire department benefits.
