Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I am starting research on manifolds to write a two to three hour class to present to my department and area departments that use 5 inch hose. I have some information coming from ifsta and some manufacturers but would like any ideas to make the class a knockout. Thanks

Nice job on the Class, Kent. The attached article shows a little different slant on manifolds. It features Rumson, New Jersey's new manifold truck. It's not a mini-pumper - it has no pump or tank. It's a 2000 gpm "manifold on wheels" that carries its own dual bed of 5-inch hose, master stream devices, attack lines, 10kw generator and tools. Rumson has areas with limited access for larger vehicles including large homes with long narrow driveways, and bridges and boardwalk with weight restrictions. May be of interest to your class.
