Advancing while Flowing Water
I've seen a number of videos on proper technique for advancing hose while flowing, as well as seen this referenced in the forums here, but I have never seen a good explanation of when or why to do this. In one video, it mentioned that this was a good way to keep crews from crawling over discarded needles but that really isn't a problem where I am in rural Ohio.
I was trained to move to the fire, open up, and then shut down and move again if need be. This has served me well enough so far on the handful of real fires I've been on. I am missing something here?
