Abstract

This research lays the foundation for a paradigm shift in how municipal fire attack hose is thought of and how it is expected to perform on the fireground. The study encompasses the enhancement of a national fire attack hose burn-through database, communication with fire departments and the fire attack hose industry, and review of national and international standards. An agenda is presented for a multi-day meeting engaging all stakeholders in the development of a next generation fire attack hose.
