10 Fire Hose, Appliances and Streams 10 FIRE HOSE  Flexible tube used by fire fighters to carry water under pressure from the source of supply to the point of discharge  Fire hose is generally classified by its size and construction

11 Fire Hose, Appliances and Streams 11 FIRE HOSE Construction  Materials  Construction  Lining  Couplings

12 Fire Hose, Appliances and Streams 12 FIRE HOSE Size  ¾”, 1” – small fires  1½”, 1¾”, 2”, & 2½” –attack lines  2½”, 3”, 4”, 5” and larger –supply of pumpers, sprinkler systems, master streams, etc. under pressure

13 Fire Hose, Appliances and Streams 13 FIRE HOSE Care  Cleaning  Drying Should NOT dry fire hose on hot pavement
