TRAINING NIGHT - Effective Hoseline Deployment
Wednesday, May 28, 2014 
-
There is perhaps no more critical task that will directly impact a fire suppression operation than that of stretching the initial handline at a structure fire. This impact will be either positive or negative. Stretching the appropriate handline quickly and efficiently will lead to rapid fire suppression with both lives and property saved. Stretching an inappropriate size attackline, deploying the line to the wrong location for the desired task, or taking an increased amount of time to position the line can effect or change the incident commander’s strategic objectives. Tonight Assistant Chief Brent Hopkins (65-9B) and Captain Wayne Kuehler (65-12A) instructed firefighters on the art of stretching a handline into structure fires. Key topics included, choosing the correct line, work as a team, advance more then the nozzle and check the line before attacking.
