Track 5 Dennis LeGear “No Gear”

Handlines; from Rig to Seat of Fire

A detailed look at Handline Hose, Handline Nozzle Selection and Handline Fire Stream Development / Application.
This class will look at all the items that go into gold standard simple critical handline flow, areas discussed in detail will be:

Hose construction/design (Tru Hose Concept)
Nozzle construction/design (CVSS, Solid Tip and Automatic) Pros and Cons
Needed Handline flow a review of the Iowa and NFA flow formulas
Handline Fire Stream effective reach, foot print of extinguishment
Stream Air Entertainment (What is the new UL understanding shedding light on?)
Water dispersal/mapping (Can we really wet adequately from the exterior?)
Playing of the handline stream the when and why? (Overhead, O, T, Z, I)
Impacts of Wye Operations (Line Commitment and Responsibility)
Standpipe design impacts on SP attack packages as it relates to smaller hose line, what are the limits factors?
Attendees should be able walk away with a better understanding of the complex thoughts of design spec and layout of equipment as it relates to handline fire stream development. This will include a understanding of stream selection and its impacts. This deeper understanding will provide the insight needed to make wise decisions as it relates to purchasing of new equipment whether it is replacement equipment or entirely new significant change over current equipment.

Hey,

In 2018 we’ll have been posting The Secret List for 20 years. In honor of that, you will see no changes. While necessary change is good, there is also so much unnecessary change in the world these days, so we figure that we won’t.

Fire still a problem? Have you seen this morning headlines in Oakland? It’s going to be a horrible ending in Oakland for the victims, families and the Oakland Firefighters who did their absolute best. How about Akron, Ohio this morning? 2 kids-2 adults dead. Tennessee this week? They are still searching for bodies. And today-the anniversary of the Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse Fire taking the lives of 9 Firefighters.
The so called “Perfect Fire” http://tinyurl.com/pv8fzma

FIRE is still very much a problem. And there are those-(most often for greed)-that deny the fire problem or pretend there isn’t a fire problem. Google the word “fire” in the news anytime as a reminder. Anytime.

If you have been getting The Secret List for more than a year or so, you know we have taken on folks (home builder associations, for example) who try to convince everyone and their brother and sister (diversity) about why…
RESIDENTIAL FIRE SPRINKLERS AREN’T NECESSARY.
Here is just one example: http://tinyurl.com/j9sgbxk

We even got into a pissi…I mean a sprinklering contest where they asked if MY home was sprinklered. It wasn’t-because my subdivision homebuilder made it impossible to install them in 1995. BUT check into sprinklering your home in 2017. Retro or whatever. There ARE solutions when we want them-my family is in 50% sprinklered homes now and we are working on the rest for 2017. Be it traditional residential sprinklers or something like this: http://www.plumis.com/automist.html or even this very basic system: http://www.plumis.com/taphead.html
We have an obligation to set the examples-and protect our own.

So whats the latest on UN-sprinklered homes?

GLAD YOU ASKED.

To us as Firefighters, the obvious is what we know-residential fire sprinkler systems knock the fire and reduces all that’s associated with fire-quickly. As the http://www.NFSA.org says “It’s The Fastest Water.” Firefighters know that. But these days, SCIENCE and DATA helps us go beyond “what we know”…or think we know. And in this case….Canadian researchers have quantified the exorbitant, economic loss associated with residential fires in homes without fire sprinklers.

Conducted by the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Ontario, the study has placed a (Canadian) dollar amount on potential years of lives lost and cost of fire deaths at home. Over a 14-year period:
==there was a collective loss of 24,051 years of life due to fire
==the study concluded that these lives that were shortened or lost from fire cost the Canadian economy $7.6 billion Canadian ($5.6 billion U.S.).
==the average cost to treat a burn patient averaged $85,000 Canadian ($64,000 U.S.)

The first phase of Sunnybrook’s study analyzed the cost of treating patients injured from home fires, placing treatment costs at $96 million Canadian ($71 million U.S.). When all resources were accounted for–including rehabilitation, transportation, and property loss–that number swelled to $3.6 billion Canadian ($2.2 billion U.S.)

It’s a big deal. But don’t take it from us, take a minute and read the below information from the NFPA …it is well worth your time and further helps us advocate a proven solution to unnecessary fires, and the horrific unnecessary loss of life.
