    No, But..................

    If it helps, in Maryland, by law, only National Standard can be used. Except Storz. This law goes back quite a few years, and almost all hose that pre-dated this law is gone. The Forest Service uses NSPT on one inch line, because it is apparently needed to meet Federal Requirements for deployment nationwide.

    The IAFC is developing a "Nationwide Mutual Aid Plan" type of thing, which I think is a Great idea, and a logical extension of this would be a requirement for standardizing hose and couplings. To add even more, should we be standardizing hose Size? I think so, and my preference is 1 inch for non-structural Firefighting, 2 inch for structural Firefighting, 3,4,and 5 inch for supply line. Why do we need odd sizes anyway?? I've used 1.75 and 2 inch attack line for years, and I prefer 2 inch for better Fire flow. The size is such that we have no problem at all advancing and working the line.

    Does anyone know of a place online that lists fire departments and the type of hose coupling thread they use?
