Without the Protection of a Hoseline: The Uncomfortable Reality

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Truck Company

Getting water on the fire is the single most important action on the fireground. However, in the cases of a long stretch, delay in engine response, unable to locate the fire, known life hazard, and other fireground hazards, firefighters may find themselves temporarily operating without the protection of the hoseline. This class will help firefighters identify the hazards associated with these incidents as well as how to use the equipment and knowledge to be able to operate as effectively as possible.
