    I think a 50" foot length of deuce and half
    is closer to about 40 to 45 pounds...make it 50+ if they are using the old "alligator hide" fabric jacket with brass couplings!

    As the others have said on this thread...the weight isn't the problem, it's the bulk of the hose and how it affects your sense of balance. Concentrate on your breathing, watch your steps and don't worry about the timeframe. You can practice by climbing stairs with weight plates in a backpack
    slung over your shoulder. While it's not the same as carrying a deuce and ahalf, you can get a feel for it.

    Good luck!

    Donut,

    CB is right, just concetrate on controlled breathing, and where you are putting your feet on the steps. Before you know it, you'll be at where you need to be, and on the way back down.

    it's not "HEAVY" But kinda bulky. You'll have no problem. just think about breathing and you won't even remember that you're carrying it. Good Luck.

    Question for Firefighter Training School

    Im applying for Firefighting school and Ive got a skills agility test in a coupel of weeks. For part of the test Ive got to carry a firehose to the top of a drill tower and then back down. Can anybody tell me how much a 50 foot, 2 1/2 inch fire hose weighs?
    Thanks in advance.
