Hose Test

posted on
April 13th was a beautiful Saturday. I’m sure lots of people spent it doing yard work or enjoying family activities. High Point volunteer firefighters spent this beautiful day testing 5000 feet of fire hose. The test involves laying out the hose in 300 foot lengths, then pressurizing it per the manufactures test requirements. If the hose doesn’t leak, burst, or show any other signs of failure it can be used for another year. That was the easy part. The hard part is getting it all loaded back on the trucks. 5000 feet tested, and another 4000 to go.
