New Equipment Training
Tue. Feb 18th 2020

Tonight NVFC worked on getting a new piece of equipment in service, and familiarized with.

The Akron Mercury Quick Attack ground monitor is capable of delivering 500 Gallons per minute of water while being unmanned, oscillate the stream, and be quickly deployed.

Such equipment finds use in scenarios where the engine company may arrive on scene and find a large building, or large fire load, and deem it necessary to apply "fast, big water." Master stream devices, also including equipment like a engine mounted deck gun, allow for high volumes of water to be flowed on the initial fire attack. It may be used on commercial structures, like a factory, or even a barn or residence. It might also be used to protect an exposure to a main fire to keep it cool, and from igniting, or on a storage vessel.

Unfortunately, it is also evident that staffing an apparatus is becoming ever more so difficult in the volunteer setting. Devices like this allow for more efficient fire attacks when the staffing is low, and multiple tasks need to be completed simultaneously.
