Point of No Return Training
When it comes to fireground operations, our team needs to be as prepared as possible. One way of making sure that we are is to train on the basics. Todays post of information to train on revolves around pulling the triple load efficiently. Just grabbing the nozzle and the loop usually causes you to have to flake and manage the hose. Pulling the load with the nozzle and the loop seperated helps to flake it for you without any management afterwards.
*Note: This is not a fix all to flaking and managing triple layer pulls, however it does increase eficiency when having to make a straight pull without obstacles.
Try this around obstacles and to Charlie side during training drills!
More efficient way
These harness options are not the only options available, however, if you find yourself without a dedicated harness available and you have extra webbing, look no furuther!
15' and 12' webbing used.
