Ok, I know I am a Truckie but I also have to run on the engine since I live close to the station. I am just wondering what everyone else uses as their primary lead out on a dumpster or car fire. On the engine in my station we added a 100' section of hose in an accordian lay to the side of the bed where we normally would walk while rebedding the LDH. The intention was it was a quick line to pull on trash fires that we didn't have to break and connect or flake 100' more hose than we needed or have to remove the back bench seat to rebed the cross lays. Over the last 10 years the line has grown to be 200' and has become the primary attack line on almost evry thing the engine goes to. If it is a big fire or a long stretch we grab the "Skid". Which is 400' of 2 1/2" and 150' of 1 3/4" connected at a gated wye. The second engine grabs the other 150' section of hose and connects it to use as a back up line to the first team. Just interested to hear what you use as you primary attack lines.
