    I don't go to their training Ops, so I don't know what they do. As well, I don't know enough about fire tactics to give you an honest answer.

    I know that all the aerials are now supplied with the 400psi LDH so they can push the water safely over the standard 200psi hose. Reason, in a round about way, was so they could push up to 250psi through the water way.

    As for pump ratings, they are split pretty evenly between 1,500 and 2,000gpm pumps. About 30 in all.

    As for going defensive on the platforms, I'm not sure if they use both, change over to dual smooth bores, or just use the one smooth bore. I'm guessing it depends on the scene and surrounding structures.

    Thanks, now I have a headache.


    Nothing said they both platform monitors can't be flowing at the same time. In fact we do it regularly as if you look at our Pierce 95 ft mid mount with the duel platform monitors, both can and usually do get into service at the same time. We may in fact use the solid bore to penetration and reach and the fog on a water curtain operation or we remove the fog nozzle and put an 1-3/4" or a 2" tip on its place.

    If you have the water supply and engines dedicated to supply the truck, actual flowing over 2000 per minute can and is done.

    I've seen them use both the smooth bore and the monitor at the same time. The smooth bore was used hitting the fire, while the monitor was used as a protective curtain to protect the building next to it.

    I'm the one Fire and Rescue calls, when they need to be Rescued.
