Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Hey guys hope all is well. I just got a rookie school in december of 2009 I was looking at some of our JPR's and one is clean and inspect hose. After you clean and inspect the hose we put it back into service and it has two options other thatn the straight and donut. It has a twin donut and a self locking donut roll just wondering if any one had any video or pics of either one. And are these rolls used much now days. Thanks, ALWAYS a ROOKIE

-In my humble opinion, the Self Locking Donut roll is such an antiquated and ineffective notion as to make it a miserable P.O.S. that should be abandon without delay.
-Any department still using a Self Locking Donut roll should explore the many and varied tactically advantageous options available for carrying hose in a high rise operation.
-Besides the always reliable and useful Stair Case Carry and the Shoulder Fold, I would suggest exploring the Cleveland Load which is a very well thought out and advantageous load.
