I just saw your slamming video of Demo Ranch and I must say I'm very disappointed in you. Sounded like a video from a child that didn't get their way so BAAAAAA, I'm going to whine about it. I've been a sub for several years now and now I will be removing you from my life. Goodbye.

I work in the film lighting industry as an electrician. We will surround a area or house with large cables with tap in points. If the circle is complete it increases (doubles)the amprage capacity of the cables. We call this, a "Ring of Fire".

Back in the mid-'90s I was able to go on a couple of fires with a forest service crew. We went from western Colorado to Idaho for one trip, and farther west in Colorado for another. Both fires were great experiences! Great camaraderie on the line and in fire camp, and some of the hardest but best work I've ever done.

Cody, pm me your PO box or where is best to send a package. I have 3 or 4 nozzles and maybe some quick connects for you. One is the same red one shown in this video. All are commercial grade at least. You may not be at your present location by the time I'm able to send them. I just had lung surgery and I'm downsizing my inventory. 🇺🇸😎

Why not use an Akron 1” forestry dual range fog nozzle instead of all those different types? 10 or 30 gpm and the ability to have straight stream or fog. I’ve put out many miles of grass fire with this type of nozzle.

I've worked a few grass fires with 25L per minute branches/nozzles on a light vehicle with 500L tank, gives you around 20 minutes of water that can be very effective. But then again I've run 475L per minute on bush fires and ended up having to evacuate because it wasn't effective. Being able to use water effectively is extremely useful. Also, all our fire services use external lug so we can all hook in to each other easily and we only need to carry size adaptors, not type adaptors

Excellent information about equipment for fighting wild land fire fighters! I am sure this will help have a certain amount security with having your own equipment and your experience. I do hope some of the young men will be inspired to become a fire fighter after listening to your video!👍 one of our neighbors son waited for an opportunity to join a local community fireman and he finally was excepted! Now he is married and has his own family. 👍

I always love these fire fighting videos. I'm glad you decided to post one again. Thanks to the some of the things I've learned from you, I've started collecting some things that could help if I come across a fire or am unfortunate to have one of my own. Thanks to this video, I'll be adding a pool or stream to my list of 'must haves' for my next home.

Firefighters in Poland fold their hoses in a different way - they first fold it in half so both ends meet each other and then you start coiling it from the folded part. This way when you uncoil it you have both ends with you so you can connect the hose to water and run with the other connector to the fire. I don't know which method is better but i think it's a cool thing to know :D

Psycho Billy
Psycho Billy 2 måneder siden
As a structural fire guy, I can't help but be impressed with how little water you have to work with. I'm not a fan of brush fires. I'm spoiled by hydrants and large tankers (I think you guys call them "tenders"). One of the things you should teach in your new venture should be basics of woodland/interface for homeowners. They need to know when to stand and fight and when to bail out.

Nice setup. Our hoses usually start in dimension where the normal firefighters end. So 2.5 inch is our small hose and we do 4 inch to feed and tee off. Heavy stuff to drag into the bush, however we usually have good water sources reasonably close by.

A little danger and thrills are good for the soul. Also they will not go into the field until their instructor believe them capable.

Cody, I built my portable fire system like this: 3-point fork attachment for my tractor. 275 gallon IBC tote that rides on the forks. PTO driven pump. 100’ of 3/4” hose. With some basic fittings and hoses to hook it up, the system works great and only cost about $300. The PTO pump is capable of 300 psi at max RPM so you don’t even need to run the tractor much above idle to generate sufficient pressure. The added benefit is that it runs on the tractor engine so there’s no extra engine to maintain and you can keep the grapple on the front of the tractor to pull fuel away from the fire.

Oh I really hope you can get into more wildland firefighting again some day, it was so amazing and fun to watch. I would love to see more of this if you ever made more videos on the processes, although the overlords may not like it 😂 My parents have a pretty awesome homestead but I worry about this a lot, so this stuff is gold.

@Noah Lamrock yep. We carry adaptors for a number of other styles, but the Rural Fire Service here in NSW Australia uses Storz fitting exclusively for bushfire fighting. They're simple, easy to maintain and you don't have to worry about issues with damaged threads. We encourage landowners to actually attach a Storz fitting to their water sources and put a sign on their gate, so the RFS knows where they can quickly draw water from during a fire.

Great way for kids to earn money for college. Stake them to a truck and a skid. Get some pals. Get red carded and earn cash for 2-3 years then sell the rig. When you go to college you will have more confidence and real life skill you blow the others away.

Real pro move: Take that "shower" nozzle off of the forester/combo nozzle and replace it with a standard toy hose nozzle. Better fog effect, clogs less, easier to un-clog, and when you use the in-between setting of the forester to flow water through both sides, you can focus it down for a real turbo mode of a straight stream in case you come upon a slash pile that's particularly hot.

@goatmurray Yeah, I did it a few times.. Yes, I always carried adapters. I considered them essential. I did use one as a Y, a couple of times, where there was enough pressure built up from the downhill slope, that I ran a 3/4 into the head, and there was still enough pressure and flow, to support two 3/4's off the nozzle heads. It can be done.
