LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS
1. Spanner Wrench (figure 4, item 1). This wrench provides the operator with a ready service tool for tightening
and loosening hoses and nozzles. The spanner wrench is necessary when adding additional lengths of hose
and draining the hose for storage.
2. Cutoff Valve (figure 4, item 2). This cutoff valve controls the flow of raw water to the hose.
3. International Thread Adapter (figure 4, item 3). This adapter allows international threaded fire hoses to be
connected to U.S. national threaded valves.
4. Storage Rack (figure 4, item 4). This storage rack stores the hose in a ready service condition. Proper use
of the storage rack will prevent the dry hose from kinking in an emergency.
5. All Purpose Nozzle (figure 4, item 5). This nozzle controls the flow of raw water out of the hose. It has the
capability of shooting a solid stream of high velocity fog. The nozzle can also be rigged with a low velocity
applicator.
6. Hose (figure 4, item 6). This hose is a standard 1.5 inch hose, and it is 50 feet (15.2 meters) in length. The
fire stations are capable of shooting 70 gallons (265 liters) of water per minute (in a solid stream) approxi-
mately 75 feet (23 meters) when pressurized to 100 PSI (6.9 bar). Total reach of a fire station is approxi-
mately 125 feet (38 meters).
