    Default Just a little squrt...


    July 16, 2001: WORCESTER—Firefighter Al Iocco jokingly sprays a fellow firefighter with ice water as they cool off after battling a fire that heavily damaged a single-family home at 4 Wayne Street.

    We have an old ambulance we use as a Rehab truck. We also use cool wet rags. It works alot better and you don't have one guy getting so tired from all that spitting.

    Stay safe and Cool

    Looks like some sort of OSHA violation to me.

    How effective is this stream???!!!! Looks to me like it's seriously lacking in g.p.m. possibly even a pressure problem. I don't think it would be effective on anything more than a burning napkin. And what about continious water supply? Would you really like to have to keep refilling his cup for him? I agree with MVFD, how long before he get's tired from all that spitting? Well gotta go, God bless, stay safe, and stay cool!

    Check out that guys helmet. No impact cap or ratchet on that one. Definitely an old N5. That guy is cool. Isn't there a forum posted on that topic?

    At the risk of being flamed alive if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Worcester wears, gulp, plastic. The yellow just looks to bright on all their helmets to be leather.
