To Quint or not to Quint, whats the deal?
Many of the instructors in the courses I have taken at my local academy are career FFs and almost every one of them have the same sentiment to the Quint, a truck shouldnít have a pump. Whatís the deal? To me a Quint gives you the beat of both worlds an apparatus that can be self-sufficient. If you look at the bigger cities, a hook and ladder need to have an engine to operate when they need to flow water. Isnít this a waste of resources and money.
Itís just a question, no need to get nasty with the responses.
