  1. 1. seating assignments
    2. engine assignments (1st due, 2nd due)
    3. water supply vs. water on fire (bulldoggin’)
    4. proper use of PPV fans
    5. efficient ventilation
    6. multi-family/garden apartment stretches (1 3/4″ v. 2 1/2″)
    that’s all for now…

  2. Explain why it is important to carry spare rolls of each for each hand line, short section of LDH, the 3″ fill line, and LDH hose clamp in the engineers compartment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Can you explain or show the loading of this method for engines that have hose trays that come off of the truck and are loaded on the ground?

  4. something to notice about your masking up…even though you were describing the procedure it still only took you one minute from the time you knelt down until you were flowing water…”take a minute, to make a minute”…talk yourself through your steps in your head and make sure your list is complete…it also slows you down enough so maybe you won’t do something stupid or get into a situation quicker than you can get out of

    • Trip loads can be stretched from either side regardless of which side it was loaded from.

      The major point to be remembered is that the firefighter grasps and controls the nozzle and loop during deployment, because of this it is usually loaded to one side or the other so it can easily be reached by all firefighters.

      I have also seen pull loops folded into the last fold on both sides for initial quick nozzle/loop access.

  5. Can you pull the triple layer load from both sides of the crosslay? From the video I would say no, but just curious cause it looks great!
