I was just wondering if anyone knew any specifics on these It commonly used for fires where a standpipe hookup is required, not necessarily a high-rise building.
This is due to the current pumpers no longer having booster reels. There are no crosslay hoseloads as hose is typically backstretched from the pumper. Though the old Mack pumpers did have some crosslays.
The hose is not preconnected. Thanx a lot guys. I like the idea of being able to connect the sections before you actually have to flake out the hose since the couplings are all beside each other. The tenders would set up portable tanks and the engines would draft the foam from them. Also don't they use the hard suction to plug up to a hydrant?
Or to draft from a waterway during a major fire? Does anyone know the FDNY truck portable ladder complement? Trucks carry roughly the same, but may be a few variations, depending on company. We also recently Field Tested a 12' fold-up literaly ladder which was the size of a briefcase when folded, and opened to a full ladder, although not very sturdy one.
It was too time consuming to set upand wasnt solid enough. Where do they store the ground ladders? Ladders Where are they kept, well on the trucks of course. They unload off the rear of the rigs where that red panel is that says FDNY and keep back.
The ladders are stored vertically on their beams so you don't have to try to roll the ladder into a carrying position. As for the suctions, the options differ based on response order but for the first due company the options are: The hard suction is Required in our regs to be used by engines arriving on the second alarm or greater.
Also can be used for drafting a few companies carry more than one length because drafting may actually be an option for them. Satellites carry multiple lengths. With the amount of fire they have, why dont the have larger pumps and LDH? And we know they dont use any LDH. This is strange to me. I would think the minimum pump would be a , and they would have tons of LDH. I'd hazard a guess that they have a really good water system, and since centrifugal fire pumps take advantage of incoming pressure they might not need more than 1,?
Our water system is ok There are many hydrants.. Now why we have our standard Engine as gpm. There are many reasons for this and I'll try to address the ones I am familiar with. Remeber I am a fireman and not a hydraulic Engineer or Staff Chief in charge of larger strategy.
Provided there is enough hose one could hook up another nozzle and take off the lengths required. However most fires where we took more than 2 lines the 3rd would come off a different Engine on a different Hydrant in most cases by far. There is no reason to overtax the Pump and Chauffeur. Besides how can a back-up line really come from the same Engine and same hydrant Most fires I've been to are controled with 1 line in operation and one standing by.
Note how many lines are stretched and how many are in operation. Usually not that many. We don't put all of our eggs in one basket. When supplying a ladder pipe we have two seperate engines from two seperate sources supplying just incase one fails. That is why there are two inlets on a siamese. Also if that isn't possible they are to feed the 1st floor outlets. I would have to say much of it is on the mark. Look back in history and you will find many Depts Today many Chiefs who really weren't great tactitions were sold on bigger and bigger hose Now instead of backstretching to the hydrant leaving the front for the Ladder they just lay in all the LDH till their hearts content and bedamed truck placement or sound Engine Practices.
I've seen what LDH and the lack of sound tactical judgement has done to fireground ops. Meanwhile there are 7 Engines sitting in staging and not a one of their pumps is being put to use. Laying in the portable water main which is what LDH basicly is isn't needed at most fires because most fires are contained with 1 maybe 2 lines at most. From my personal experince in other more "typical" american FDs.
I've been to many fires in other depts where there were 4 lines stretched and charged for a Private dwelling and the ladder pipe was flowing.
All the water all from the same rig. Meanwhile I've been to some good fires in Tenements where we only have 1 or 2 lines in operation and one stretched but not charged just in case. Personal opinion from my many different depts I've worked for Although it is a small difference it does make a difference on pump pressures When you have 4 apparatus capable of pumping on your first alarm FDNY does this as well as my previous FDs as well in addition to most urban and suburban FDs I am familiar with there is little reason to place all ones eggs into the same basket and hope for the best.
You have the Engines and the Chauffeurs Don't be lazy like many people I've worked with This is for the fires wayyyyyy up in the sky. We also have 6 Engines quartered with our 6 Satelite units that have gpm pumps and are used to feed the Satelites large guns or the large manifolds used at large multiple alarms.
There are special hydrants city wide that they are to use for those purposes. Those are for the large fires where LDH is really needed. Not the room and contents fire which is much more common. Like FFRED said we generally operate by taking the rig to the hydrant and we carry enough hose and have enough hydrants to do so.
The pumping capacity is being looked at right now, some future enhancements include satellite back-up companies to get gpm pumpers and there is discussion of gpm for standard first line units.
Do we need gpm, not really, we operate 1 or 2 lines off the first due engine with few exceptions, we do not use LDH except for the front suction and satellites. The primary concern is our vulnerable water supply system, all of the 3. The pipeline system in San Francisco is being looked at as well as other options. We have come along way in ashort time but we still have a lot to do.

To blame for the paradox are America's drought-cured forests, decades of failed fire policy, and a fierce attachment to the idea that wildland firefighters are still capable of controlling blazes that are burning more intensely now than at any point in history. Solving the wildfire crisis is going to require policy changes. It also demands that the million Americans living in fire-prone areas start proactively preparing for the flames. The rank of an officer in an American fire department is most commonly denoted by a number of speaking trumpets , a reference to a megaphone -like device used in the early days of the fire service, although typically called " bugle " in today's parlance.
Ranks proceed from one lieutenant to five fire chief bugles. Traditional ranks in American fire departments that exist but may not always be utilized in all cities or towns include:.
In many fire departments in the U. There is no state or federal rank structure for firefighters and each municipality or volunteer fire department creates and uses their own unique structure. Still, some other American fire departments such the FDNY use military rank insignia in addition or instead of the traditional bugles. Additionally, officers on truck companies have been known to use rank insignias shaped like axes for Lieutenants 1 and Captains 2. Toronto firefighters prepare their equipment.
Although people have fought fires since there have been valuable things to burn, the first instance of organized professionals combating structural fires occurred in Ancient Egypt.
Likewise, fire fighters of the Roman Republic existed solely as privately organized and funded groups that operated more similarly to a business than a public service; however, during the Principate period Augustus revolutionized firefighting by calling for the creation of a fire guard that was trained, paid, and equipped by the state- the first truly public and professional firefighting service.
Known as the Vigiles , they were organised into cohorts and also served as a night watch and city police force. The earliest American fire departments were volunteers, including the volunteer fire company in New Amsterdam , now known as New York.
As time progressed and new towns popped up throughout the region there was a sharp increase in the number of volunteer departments. Many large cities began establishing paid, full-time, staff in order to try facilitate greater fire-related call volume. Louis Fire Department followed Cincinnati four years later and became the second established career fire department in the country followed by other large cities like New York FDNY. City fire departments draw their funding directly from city taxes and share the same budget as other public works like the police department and trash services.
Aside from big city fire departments, many populated suburbs and towns have career fire departments. The primary difference between a municipality department and a City department is the funding. Municipal fire departments do not share their budget with any other service and are considered to be private entities within a jurisdiction.
This means that they have their own taxes that feed into their budgeting needs. Another main difference is the structure of the department. City fire departments have the mayor at the top of the chain where as municipal departments have elected board officials who help maintain and run the department along with the chief officer staff.
In a country with a comprehensive fire service, fire departments must be able to send firefighters to emergencies at any hour of day or night, to arrive on the scene within minutes. In urban areas, this means that full-time paid firefighters usually have shift work , with some providing cover each night. On the other hand, it may not be practical to employ full-time firefighters in villages and isolated small towns, where their services may not be required for days at a time.
For this reason, many fire departments have firefighters who spend long periods on call to respond to infrequent emergencies; they may have regular jobs outside of firefighting. Whether they are paid or not varies by country. In the United States and Germany, volunteer fire departments provide most of the cover in rural areas.
In the United Kingdom and Ireland, by contrast, actual volunteers are rare. Instead, " retained firefighters " are paid for responding to incidents, along with a small salary for spending long periods of time on call.
In popular literature firefighters are sometimes depicted with Dalmatian dogs. This breed originated in southern Europe and was primarily responsible for herding livestock and running alongside carriages drawn by horses.
In the days of horse-drawn fire vehicles, the horses were usually released on arrival at the fire and the Dalmatians would lead the horses through traffic and to a safe place to wait until the fire was out. Dalmatians also filled the role of protecting the horses' feet from other dogs as equipment was being transported to the fire scene. In reality, most fire dogs were mutts pulled from the street and thus cheaper to acquire.
In addition, Dalmatians have a reputation for skittishness and congenital defects, such as deafness and more violent tendencies due to inbreeding. Funds for fire-fighting equipment may be raised by the firefighters themselves, especially in the case of volunteer organizations.
Events such as pancake breakfasts and chili feeds are common in the US. Social events are also used to raise money, including dances, community fairs and car washes. Media related to Firefighter at Wikimedia Commons. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Earlier this year, a video was uploaded of what appears to be a man chastising a group of firefighters for having the nerve to go grocery shopping on his taxpayer dime. Yes, firefighters need to buy food to eat just like the rest of us, and they also dig into their own pockets to do so.
I have to correct them and inform them that we buy all of our own food. This is something the grownups find fun as well, and for that reason not everyone gets to do it right away.
Rob says that as a firefighter, "there's a lot of work and training involved and there's an inherent risk of death or great bodily injury —but they let us drive a big red truck with a siren, so it all seems worth it for us. This is something many people within the industry would like to see change. Women have been working as firefighters ever since, and there were even two entirely female-staffed departments in Illinois for part of World War II. We truly become a family," Robert says.
