My department is starting to switch out all of the Akron combination nozzles with smooth bore nozzles. Let's discuss this!
What are the Pros & the Cons for both combination and smooth bores?
Which do you prefer?
I like the combination nozzles for the following reasons:
- Hydraulic ventilation
- More control ( I can change if needed)
- Self cooling if needed for emergency purposes
- Propane fires
-Car Fires ( Sweeping & etc....)
My Concerns with the combination nozzles are
- STEAMING by the nozzle-man ( Rookie)
I would love to hear how the professionals in the FE Community feel about this.
Remember be SAFE & TRAIN as training will save lives!
