Firehouse Expo Nashville

The Stretch
Curt Isakson, Battalion Chief, Escambia County, FL, Fire Rescue

This program will cover five hoseloads that all firefighters should understand and know how to stretch with limited staffing. Attendees will spend the day stretching, flowing and backing it up. The instructors will examine where our water goes in an effort to extinguish the fire in the shortest period of time. All students will rotate through six stations during the day to enhance their abilities on stretching and flowing for their next fire. Stations include: hoseloads and deployments; understanding the big three (target flow, friction loss and nozzle reaction); flowing while advancing; placing the second line; engine emergencies; engine search (first line to the rescue.
