Thanks for leaving a comment on that hose load. Guys are still working with different aspects of it. Tweeking it here and there. If you don't have pistol grips on your nozzles, it can be placed on a cross lay. It works best with higher pressures (ie. fog nozzles 150 psi +) The problem with lower pressure applications is that the hose may kink as it uncoiles. With the high pressure applications, it works great. 50 ft. at the door, everytime. You can look on Youtube and find several close applications. Oh, if you have houses that set very close to the street, this load works fantastic.

Rob, I here ya, but keep the chin up. When you start the new job go back to the recruit days and LISTEN and see how its done there, only give your experiences when asked. They might do things totally different. BE SAFE Bro.

I am happy to have you as a friend! If you need any help with your recruitment, retention or pride/ownership, let me know, we have been working hard on those two subjects for a long time, and we have been very successful!

Stay strong Brother.

Thanks for joining CSf (Common Sense Firefighitng ). It's a fire ground leadership and decison making page on the site. Jump into any discussion at any time. There are alkways some good ones going. This is the first time I have ever seen someone list fire ground size up as an area of expertise, Bravo!!! That is what it's all abot for me. I think we onlt do three things on the fire ground, no matter what our orders are - Size Up, Decide what is wrong and fix it to the best of our ability. How many members odes your dept get on the first due alarm?
