There has been several times were some of our visitors ask about the different pre-attack hose loads, and their applications. This could be a simple task if there is only a few fire fighters, the demonstration can take place using an engine, etc. and following all of the safety guidelines. Nevertheless, when there are more than a few fire fighters, then it becomes a little time consuming. With this in mind and by investing only a few bucks ($2.99) I manage to build this simple hose load prop from recycle aluminum materials. The beauty of it is that we can cover all of the items regarding hose loads from the ground level, present it to the members, and each one can have a "hands on" safely. I will be making some additions in the future (ran out of recycled materials) to this prop such as an inner wall to simulate an engine's pre-attack section for a 2 or 3 hose tier. I re-emphasize, this great tool can be made of recycled materials, wood, etc. at minimum cost, a little sweat, but the outcome is great benefit on training for the troops.
