Hose

Fire hose is used as either supply hose or attack hose. Supply hose moves water or an extinguishing agent from a source to a fire pump. Attack hose moves an extinguishing agent at an elevated pressure from the fire pump, through a nozzle, which is then applied to the products of combustion by a firefighter.

For firefighters to safely manipulate fire hoses and the necessary appliances they must know the capabilities of the equipment and the proper safe use of it.

The following pages describe safe operations involving fire hose.
