modified 200' triple lay hose load

We experimented with hose loads and deployment today. My department currently runs the triple lay on all our crosslays, which are 200 ft.While training today, and considering our short staff problem, We flat layed 100' with a hand loop at 50 and tripled the last 100' on the other side of the tray.By grabbing the triple lay in normal fashion in one hand and the loop of the flat load in the other, all hose cleared the bed, and when deployed, the nozzle person has 33' of usable hose at the attack…See More
