Members of UCFD Station 3 trained on hose deployment and water supply last night. This consisted of training for arriving on a fire scene, determining length of supply and attack hoses needed, deploying and connecting these together along with multiple fire appliances from an engine to the nozzle, and flowing water within 6 minutes. Once firefighters begin flowing water on a scene, it very critical to continue the supply of water for a successful attack and extinguishment of a fire.
