    Default Nozzle Reaction on Video

    Sometimes large hose and flow rates can be a problem.

    Crazy, but that's how it goes

    Looked like and inch and a half or maybe a 1 3/4 hose line. Too me the big issue is who was butting the ladder and the answer seems to be NO ONE! How does a butted ladder spin and then slide down the truck box to the ground like that?

    The worst part is there were three other guys who literallly stod there and watched the whole thing. Maybe he's not popular?

    They were up close and personal. I hope they knew what the cargo was. Traffic control looked a little sloppy too.

    They make a tool for that ...... Unfortunately, most departments don't carry it anymore.

    And yes, the unbutted ladder is also an issue.

    If they had this, he wouldn't even need to be on a ladder...

    Would have been an excellent alternative as well.

    That being said, it's probably the most forgotten and underused tool on both my combination and volunteer departments.
