Drill #134: Hose Stretches
The only effective way to get water on the fire is to stretch hoselines. Readers will learn how to choose the best nozzle for the job and how to properly strech the line to avoid kinks and obstructions.
The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.
Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.
Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
