IMHO, a charged hose line is a very good thing to have with you at the scene of an Motor Vehicle Accident. Recently I have seen some of these deployed it places I would be concerned about. Again In My Home Opion, I feel the hose line should be behind the Rescue crew, in other words in a position to PUSH the fire away from the rescuers and the patient. I have seen situations where the hose line was placed on the oposite side of the wreck. To me this is wrong, should a fire erupt the hose lines application would PUSH the fire back on to the victims and Rescuers. I know these words paint a hazzy picture,but want to hear your points of view on this
