Straight tips vs. Fog nozzles

Straight tips vs. fog nozzles. Just putting this out for debate. My Dept does not have straight tips on any line. The few we have are locked away in compartments. Most lines are pre-connected with fog nozzles, I have a personal opinion. I believe we should split the nozzles half straight tip and half fog. I like straight tips for putting water on the fire and if the straight tip is used correctly it can keep both fire and water damage to a minimum.

Thanks Don. I'll give you a shout sometime. I am pleased to hear that you red my material as well. Unfortunately, far to many people don't read the entire post or comment and respond to what sets them off while missing the entire message.
Happy to hear that you don't suffer from that affliction.
