Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

How many of you drill on alternative hose stretches on a regular basis? Is your training stuck on just laying a LDH feeder and pulling the 1 3/4" pre-connect? Or do you think "out of the box"? How is this perceived by your crews?

We get a chance to do some other type of hose stretches now and then. Once in a while w get to work with the 2 1/2's and forward vs. reverse water supply lays. I also like to talk with the guys on dicison making for all of these as if they were officers. I think the crew likes it when they get training on "Why" we should do one thing or another
