The latest addition to our video training series focuses on the importance of a well coordinated nozzle team. In this video Nate DeMarse and Chris Collier demonstrate effective nozzle and back-up firefighter techniques. In this video a 2 1/2" line equipped with a smooth bore nozzle with a 1 1/8" tip was used. At 50 lbs nozzle pressure this line is flowing approximately 280 gallons per minute (GPM) and can still be moved effectively by two firefighters. The nozzle reaction of the smooth bore is approximately half that of most combination nozzles while flowing the same GPM.
