So, we have one smooth bore nozzle on each engine as a cross lay, but I've personally never seen it deployed, or deployed it myself as a primary attack line. I've used them in essentials just to get used to the fire stream and handling, etc. Also, obviously the essentials course covers fire behavior, fire streams, and the interactions of all cominations of the above. But, classroom and textbooks only go so far against real world experience. Long story short, I've never crawled into a box on fire and put it out with a solid stream. Are these results typical? It's clear as day after their knockdown. Also, if these results are typical, I would imagine I would want the firefighters to use a smooth bore if I was the victim, with no bunker gear/SCBA. Would this assumption be correct?
Side note: I/my dept. sets attack lines to straight stream prior to entry. The video shows a fog pattern. I would probably only use this with a hydraulic vent, which in my (very limited) experience, works great.
