Stopping the armpit firefighter problem should start immediately! No matter what type of nozzle your department uses all firefighters should be well schooled in the art of firefighting. Using a nozzle should be a base for firefighter training. During the training is where we develop good nozzle, backup, and advancement skills that are needed to be an effective "team." If you are a armpit firefighter it's time to make the announcement and reach out for help! Ask your fellow firefighters for help bringing you out of the pits!
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend.
