    Nothing like debating over an 11 year old thread. Awesome.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    Not really. Nothing a 2.5" to 5" storz adapter could not handle. We have several hydrants with 2-2.5" discharges and we just use an adapter. We carry 1500' - 5" forward lays and 600' - 2.5" in a reverse lay.
    The big problem would be filling the hose on a low volume, low pressure hydrant system. We are luck, we generally have from 70 to 85 psi on our hydrant system, so it is not an issue.

    The solution to this terrible issue is really quite simple...







    And the worst part about the $125 adapter is you'll get more water from that hydrant than if you used 2 1/2" or 3" hose; shocking!

    That's not a problem with 5", that's a problem with your water system....

My dream and I hope you don't find this too crazy is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    I had no idea. This is amazing!

    I wonder if that is just water, or if it applies to other things as well.
    Won't fit in 7 OPEC barrels,hehe T.C.
