Outside-the-Box Engine Ops: 3 unique options for getting water to the upper floors of a building

By Jerod Levin



You’re the officer of a three-person engine company. Most of the fires you respond to are in single-family homes, but you do have commercial occupancies in your district, too.

fog or smooth bore nozzle?

at my dept. theres always an argument in which is better. i prefer fog nozzles just because of the fog. if you know how to use one properly they can save your life. they cant prevent a flashover but can help you in getting out of the structure away from it. so my point is what do you prefer smooth bore or fog nozzles? and why do you prefer it?
