I suggest to change the title to  "US Nozzle Handling Technique" rather than "proper"... I'll be next week in France to train flashover instructor and if I show them that, they will laught so much I think they will fall from their chair.

Such a way of doing is logical as the use of a nozzle like that, is unable to cool the aera. So in order not to get burned the FF have to use the hose line to handle the nozzle. In fact the bad use of nozzle create a problem that you try to correct by a new problem. This is a common way of doing but not a good one.

Use correctly a good nozzle, and you'll be able to cool the area without water on the ground and you'll be able to enter and attack the fire without water dammage.
