System for Drying Fire Hose A system of drying fire hose has been developed by Chief F. Dubois of Kenora, Ont. A hose clamp releases the hose from hangers at the top of the tower so that it is not necessary to send a man up the tower to lower the hose. The hose is washed and cleaned before it is dried. All hose is hung up full length with the male ends up and it is lowered from the tower by a man on the ground floor. This system of hose drying has been endorsed by members of the local fire commission.
