    • Hose Loads

      Has anyone ever pulled a cross lay and it end up in a big pile of knots on the ground? or pulled off a couple of flakes and realized that the D/O has not gotten the rest. Are dept. has started to triple load the hose, basicly you loop your cross lay into three equal parts with the nozzle about tree feet longer than the loop and lace it like normal. Works great no knots no mess and all the hose comes off flaked. It is even rookie proof, we have used it over a dozen times with great sucess. try it somtime and let me know what you think.

      • Hydrant bags

        We keep are hydrant bags connected to the end of are LDH, well the problem is that the bags are heavy and sitting at the top of the truck. We tried keeping them on the tailboard but looks like the poo. So we leave them on top and have a short peice of hose strap tied to the handles, now we can pull the bag from the ground and throw the strap over are shoulder to carry to the hydrant and wrap around the hydrant.Works great.

        Great thread good ideas.

        Work smarter not harder!

                  • Our hydrant bag is a canvas tool bag kept on the back step with ball valves for side outlets and adapters for various hydrant thread. It gets tossed at the hydrant with the line when laying in.

                        • The dry erase marker will write on the face of the gauge very well too. It can also be used to write the address of the run on the officer's door window or a small dry erase board fastened to the dash.

                            Man, are you slow or what?

                            Try using "our" and not "are" in many of the sentences in your above quote.

                            So slow he didnt even get it!

                            Just a jab.

                              • keep a towel in your engineers compartment. When you've got a poor connection on your suction inlet or a discharge line, drape the towel over it to cause all the water spray to drool onto the ground instead of all over your panel and you.
