It is crucial to be a well-trained nozzleman and attack crew. Often times the attack team is a team of two or less. This video goes into details of the crew. This is a classic by the late great Andy Fredericks of FDNY Engine 48 and later Squad 18 (LODD-9/11/2001).
Tactics have changed over the years which allows room for newer techniques in hoseline advancement that relieves the backup firefighter from being right up on the nozzleman, however, this is a great video to refer back to the classics.
The main thing to take away from this video is the fact that deploying and advancing a hoseline efficiently is important for those who we serve and their property.
