    Question Ldh

    I am 1st Lieutenant with a volunteer fire co that runs with 5"in LDH hose. We are hosting a Department wide drill next month on this topic. I just wanted to know if anyone has any updated information about LDH or where I could go to get information on LDH. I'm not to sure if much has changed if anything on LDH. I would greatly appricate any information anyone could pass on to me. Thanks again and work safe!!

    What do you already know about LDH?

    the only problem we had is hooking up to other companies, just make sure that all companies you run with have the adaptors.
    We use to run 3in 3 1/2 supply, we converted all of our engines to 5" changed all of the adapters and put the 3 and 3 1/2 inch adapters away(big mistake)we got dispatch to assist another company before we could drill with them, and could not hook up to them with the 5", could of used 2 1/2 to supply them but our 2 1/2 is a primary and secondary attack line only. other companies had problems laying in to us. going from a 3 1/2 to 5"(you know how that story goes.We've had 5"in for quite a few years. when we first got the hose other companies were telling us it was a waste of money,but now 7 yrs later out of 6 companies in our district all but 1 run with 5"in.
