Apparatus & Equipment

Next to emergency medical services equipment, preconnected hoselines are probably the most used equipment on the engine. Yet, when designing and specifying new apparatus, we put preconnects and (especially) crosslays usually where they will fit or where we always put them-on top of the pump module.
Firefighting

The more time a fire department spends developing an easier and more efficient method for loading preconnected attack lines, the less time it will take to deploy the lines at the emergency scene.
