GLAZIER NOZZLE AT CHATTANOOGA.
The Glazier nozzle recently supplied to the fire department of Chattanooga, Tenn., has been tested and accepted by the city’s board of safety. It is attached to the chemical wagon behind the seat, and fastened to the wagon, being made reversible, so that heavy streams can be turned in any direction. The nozzle is made to handle two or three streams of water and make one heavy stream. The first test was with a one and five-eighths-inch nozzle. The stream started up slowly with the big nozzle; but in less than a minute it shot up twenty-eight feet higher than the twentytwo-ft. Hag pole on the top of the highest building in the city—an 8-story skyscraper at the corner of Eleventh and Eighth streets. The second test was made with a I⅛-in. nozzle, which displayed more force than the first stream. The new fire wagon is equipped with 1,100 feet of 2½in. hose; 200 feet of 1 -in. chemical hose; a 40pallon, chemical extinguisher, ladders and all necessary accessories.
