Our own Mel “Big Water” Kelly shared this post on his personal page yesterday. Mel is a retired Captain with the City of Gastonia FD and is a NC Instructor who has taught hundreds of firefighters across the state over his career. See his post below - thanks for the wisdom @bigwater0195
Hoseloads. Everyone has their favorite. No matter what hoseload you prefer, the decision SHOULD NEVER be based on the ease of loading the hose back. It SHOULD ALWAYS be based off of the area the rig covers, ease of deployment, etc. Its about the front end of the fire, not the back end. Hoseloads should compliment and support each other. Multiple lines of the same length and size don't offer much in the way of versatility and options. The rig pictured has multiple lines of different sizes and lengths give members lots of options. 150' 1.75" front bumper line all the way to 600' of 2.5" outfitted with an 1 3/16 tip. No two lines are the same. Which ever line is chosen, the backup or second line will be larger or longer.

That "Big Water" has so much knowledge to share.
Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue what's the purpose of the alternating longer folds on the white and black 2.5?
Love this setup. Do you guys find it difficult to reload hose with the dividers that tall?
That’s not Big Water that’s Big Brother! 🧑🏻🚒
What’s the tank size?
Looks good on a Seagrave
Jeff Mann now that’s a hosebed
