    Talking Water Application

    Check out this video!

    What caused the sudden increase in flame production in the overhead?

    I have some ideas, but I would like to hear more.

    The introduction of oxygen to a combustible atmosphere.

    Itís a perfect example of why you should stay low.

    Iím not getting into how the oxygen came in.

    Stay Safe

    Its hard to tell if they ever opened the line at all. I think it looks like maybe they got it opened up.

    I was just wondering if it did that prior to getting the nozzle opened up.

    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.

    How do you know thats what happened? That was kinda my point. I am not sure if that ocurred after they opened the line or if there was just a rapid development of fire as they entered the room. That can happen you know.

    You're right it can.

    Didn't you see the nozzle get opened up right before the sudden increase of fire in the overhead? I did. Watch it a couple of times.

    Hey,

    Seems to me they're using a narrow cone patern on a fog nozzle without any forward ventilation. The increased pressure in the room caused by the fog nozzle vented through the only opening available (the door)...

    Regards,

    Sly
