3 Deck Guns, Portable Monitors & Bomb Lines  High flow for large fires  Can be put into service quickly  For Offensive or Defensive Attacks  Operated from Apparatus  Operated on Ground with Portable Base  High flow for large fires  Can be put into service quickly  For Offensive or Defensive Attacks  Operated from Apparatus  Operated on Ground with Portable Base

4 Why rethink our attack strategy?  Need for higher flows - Both interior and exterior  Higher fire loading in the structures  More numerous hazardous materials  Modern engines with higher flows  Need for higher flows - Both interior and exterior  Higher fire loading in the structures  More numerous hazardous materials  Modern engines with higher flows

5 Why rethink our attack strategy?  Changes in manning  How do we improve our flow with less people?  Larger diameter hose for moving water greater distances with less friction loss  Development of small lightweight portable monitors to handle the larger flows  Changes in manning  How do we improve our flow with less people?  Larger diameter hose for moving water greater distances with less friction loss  Development of small lightweight portable monitors to handle the larger flows

6 Conflicting goals? How are we going to INCREASE FLOWS and EFFECTIVENESS with LESS PERSONNEL? How are we going to INCREASE FLOWS and EFFECTIVENESS with LESS PERSONNEL?

7 Tactical Choices... What will be your first line pulled?  1 3/4” Preconnect  2 1/2” Preconnect  Preconnected Bomb Line with single 3” Line (2nd line optional) What will be your first line pulled?  1 3/4” Preconnect  2 1/2” Preconnect  Preconnected Bomb Line with single 3” Line (2nd line optional)

8 Lots of Fire... Minimum Personnel...  1 3/4” - 2 firefighters flow 160 GPM – (80 GPM each)  2 1/2” - 3 firefighters flow GPM – ( GPM each)  Bombline -3 firefighters flow GPM – ( GPM each)  1 3/4” - 2 firefighters flow 160 GPM – (80 GPM each)  2 1/2” - 3 firefighters flow GPM – ( GPM each)  Bombline -3 firefighters flow GPM – ( GPM each)

9 Options for attack?  1 - 4” Bombline 3 Firefighters  3 - 3” Attack Lines9 Firefighters  /4” Handlines 10+ Firefighters  1 - 4” Bombline 3 Firefighters  3 - 3” Attack Lines9 Firefighters  /4” Handlines 10+ Firefighters For 1000 GPM delivery: equalsequals equalsequals

10 Monitor Reaction Force...  High flows mean high reaction forces  Portable monitors must be secured to prevent sliding & lifting  Do not exceed manufacturer’s recommended operating flow & pressure  High flows mean high reaction forces  Portable monitors must be secured to prevent sliding & lifting  Do not exceed manufacturer’s recommended operating flow & pressure

11 Reaction Forces 502 (1 3 / 8 ”SB) 80 psi 227 lb/f 502 (1 3 / 8 ”SB) 80 psi 227 lb/f psi253 lb/f psi253 lb/f psi379 lb/f psi379 lb/f psi505 lb/f psi631 lb/f 502 (1 3 / 8 ”SB) 80 psi 227 lb/f 502 (1 3 / 8 ”SB) 80 psi 227 lb/f psi253 lb/f psi253 lb/f psi379 lb/f psi379 lb/f psi505 lb/f psi631 lb/f Nozzle Pressure Nozzle Reaction Flow(GPM)Flow(GPM)

12 Comparative Thrust Power (140 H.P.) Equal to a portable monitor flowing 1000 GPM!

13 Weight has little to do with it Not securing your portable monitor is just asking for trouble! Not securing your portable monitor is just asking for trouble!

14 Possible Securing Points for Monitors...  Parking Meters  Mailboxes  Trees  Parked Cars  Traffic Signs  Telephone Poles  Front Looped Hoselines  Non-removable Street Drains  Parking Meters  Mailboxes  Trees  Parked Cars  Traffic Signs  Telephone Poles  Front Looped Hoselines  Non-removable Street Drains

15 Additional Means for Safe Operation...  Use a life safety rope to extend the length of the chains or tie off strap  Interior work; use a long pry bar in doorway  Use the door jam itself  Span two immovable objects with life safety rope, keeping the angle as straight as possible  Use a life safety rope to extend the length of the chains or tie off strap  Interior work; use a long pry bar in doorway  Use the door jam itself  Span two immovable objects with life safety rope, keeping the angle as straight as possible

16 Elevation Safety Stop Pin...  It is a SAFETY STOP !  NEVER pull (override) in portable mode  Reaction forces will remain within footprint of portable monitor base, unless pulled  Should only be pulled when monitor is mounted on deck pipe on apparatus  Make sure stop pin is engaged when changing from deck mode to portable mode  Always use tie down method to secure monitor  It is a SAFETY STOP !  NEVER pull (override) in portable mode  Reaction forces will remain within footprint of portable monitor base, unless pulled  Should only be pulled when monitor is mounted on deck pipe on apparatus  Make sure stop pin is engaged when changing from deck mode to portable mode  Always use tie down method to secure monitor
