Second Division Hose Advancement
Hey guys! I have had a problem since fire school (I am a fresh graduate of FF1) of getting the line upstairs. I dont know if it is my partners when I am nozzleman, because I push that line up pretty damn quick (and I am a very slim kid) and they do well.
When I am nozzleman, I pull with all my mite, and my partner is seemingly trying. Knock the fire down when I open up, close and then prepare to go down the stairwell. Now my partners are pulling the line so quick, im basically running down the stairwell. My *** gets chewed out because I should not run down stairs, but I did not want to lose contact with my nozzle
TL : DR I want to know the best way to get the line up a stairwell. One from a nozzlemans perspective, and one of the backup man.
I am afraid (the way my town is) I will get the big fire before my next burn trip and how quick I am Ill be on the Line seat and i **** up going up the stairs and hurt my partner. Help a brother out =]
