Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

We are fortunate not to have many basements in our community. However we have our share of fires in attics, above drop ceilings, and in between layers of ceilings due to remodeling. I am searching for a light wt piercing nozzle that is not ment for smashing through a cinder block wall but is strong enough to break through a dry wall ceiling or a layer of OSB and is fairly easy to opperate over your head. We already have some Flamefighter model 2500's. I extended one 3' longer to reach high into a ceiling and it felt way to heavy to be efficiently used in this mannor. I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions. Thanks.
