I welcome the pioneering training that sponsored by we'll turn out here I'm nick Martin today we're gonna talk about the deployment options for stand by these devolution. There are a variety of different standpoint. -- -- -- configurations out there. Each with their own distinct advantages and disadvantages today we're gonna talk about specific style of standpoint Iraq. Or engine three quarter -- and some of the advantages that it offers us. The style bracket were using -- that's when a -- here is a hundred feet of ancient pre order line regarding -- -- that an appropriate Basel -- -- assembly connect or two and a half standpoint about. Some department also attacked a small back with that that carries and -- by related accessories and we simply haven't secured with three seat -- style assemblies the advantage to this style line -- that's gonna allow us to hook up and -- our alliance and how water immediately available by without having to worry about leaking out of line. When all possible its IPO will be able to hook up. The floor below or at a distance from your fire but in some areas where you might have a wall outlet in the middle of -- hallway or -- one story big box styles -- with a standby system or when you -- an error in guessing where the fire is located you may need to have water available to fight fire now. And this line is is well suited for that style evolution. To deploy this line here we already have our standby system charge the appropriate pressure we remove the cap and assistant has watched -- we're ready to hook up. So let's see how this works in -- is gonna demonstrate for us. We -- our assembly down in the area to stand -- encouraged to simply gonna release are three strapped. They can -- move a -- with a reduced or assembly on it. We'll make our connection -- -- the -- right. And now we can go down and we're gonna go to the middle of our assembly where the pipe is. And just spread out into a -- Replace the pipe to the outside and what this is gonna do is create when it's charged. A series of loose that is gonna play out of the top effortlessly so that's why it's important that we face the fight out into the side and now the Carolinas late now -- ready to charge -- -- As our line is charged you'll see that it's gonna expand into a series of loops and it's gonna have very minimal below peaking at all -- that. And allow us to have constant and immediate -- at -- -- We now have a hundred be -- that's been charged in a very tight space and for apartment to the -- that -- -- push down the hallway and without me. Even talking that we see that the line automatically imports now out of the top of the series of loops. Maintaining minimal gains and allowing for abbreviated deployment even -- -- firefight. That. Wrap it up. What we see here that we have an option for deploying an -- reporter based they have quite wracked with minimal manpower many department these days. -- operate with minimal manpower and this is certainly an option for there are many variety of different -- quite -- out -- each with its own advantage and disadvantage -- them.
