Fire Stream Design, Development and Application

Friday, April 19
Classroom Session

This class will cover discussions points on handlines, single inlet mini monitor fire streams, and master stream development/application, with these three key areas brought into sharper focus, volume, placement, and velocity. Critical knowledge/understanding points will be addressed, in handline attack package design from small to large. This will include the selection and implications of these key points: target flows handline to master dtream, nozzle pressures, reaction force, backpressure, hose construction/design, pump plumbing/psi pickups, panel gauge design, applying suppression water from exterior positions vs. interior positions, on plane vs. off a plane, wind impacts, and hidden fire.
