FIRE NOZZLE READINESS • PRIOR TO CALLING FOR WATER, perform and call out the proper nozzle checks: • “Tight - breakaway- nozzle tight - 150 GPM - full fog. ” • The Breakaway portion of the nozzle is what the bale is attached to. The Nozzle portion threads onto the breakaway. • FFDSD keeps 1 ¾ attack line nozzles set to 150 GPM on all select -o-flow nozzles with the exception of bumper lines which are set 95 GPM. • Full fog diminishes water reaction and allows for proper nozzle checks at entry point.

SEATING ASSIGNMENTS • Firefighter #1: Company Officer acts as lead firefighter. • Firefighter #2: Engineer Drives the Engine Apparatus and pumps water to hoses and ensures proper fire flow and pump calculations are done. • Firefighter #3: Also known as Line Breaker. #3, rides seated behind the engineer. Line Breaker #3 will be responsible for securing the initial attack and/or supply line. Line Breaker #3 will also take on the role of Nozzle Person will be responsible for calling for water on the hose line, and advancing the attack line into the structure. Line Breaker, #3 and Nozzle Person will all refer to the same firefighter. • Firefighter# 4: The Number Four position also known as Drop off. #4 rides seated behind the captain. This name comes from the command given by the captain to initiate Engine Company activities at an emergency. To “drop off” is to start an action that will eventually bring water to the pump, or initiate a series of events needed to mitigate an emergency situation. Drop Off #4 will typically be given an order to back up their partner. Drop Off #4 will be given a series of orders which when complete will place them in direct support of the actions being taken on by Line Breaker #3. For this reason, another name given to Drop Off #4 is Support. Drop Off, #4 and Support refer to the same firefighter.
