The Sunday Preach:
"ONE MISSION AND ONE MISSION ONLY" "A key foundation to doing our job since the inception of the fire service is the establishment and delivery of water." (Chapter 16 'Where is My Water' - pg. 167)
Water on Fire = No more Fire
...and this my friends, is good for everyone
So, while Engine may have over the generations changed color, shape and size and have more bells and whistles than the Apollo moon capsule, the MISSION has not changed.
While we know that there are many moving parts any firefight, Engine Company members must sustain, not falter from the core MISSION.
The MISSION: establishing a positive water supply, flawless hoseline deployment, and nozzle operation for fire attack. Good Engine Companies are always looking to MASTER THIS MISSION.
