I never even mentioned anything about how it goes off the truck. It's nice to see people of your brilliance still outs ideas and thoughts into my mouth, so I don't have to.

Alright, well, why don't you show us your ideas and how they are better than current methods. If it is a great idea and the right person sees it, your method can get adopted into standards among departments.
Good luck, though. If you've never done it before, you'll find the simple act of just "picking it all back up" is surprisingly hard to top.

My point was never to design the best system myself, but that something could easily be implemented with few or no downsides. Or at least, that's what I thought I meant. Other people know more about what I say and think than I do, it seems.


Here are two ideas I had immediately. Keep in mind that I'm not an engineer, and that this is purely conceptional.

I'll go with the bad idea first: Strings. Each string is connected between two points in a set length, string obviously being slightly longer. Several mechanisms, or simply pulling would allow to simply drag everything up in folds. There are some issues to make this reality, and I would need to know weight and more.

Main idea: Metallic rectangle. That's pretty much it. Maybe some form of spring, or other aspects like "sticky" material. A semi-automated system could be the "rectangle" being latched on the truck as a ramp and going in either circles or back and forth, depending on what materials are used.


Both are just very quick concepts, the 2nd one actually being something that's close to viable. It's better to never have any discussion and shut down any ideas without hearing them though. Progression is the enemy.

Ex-Firefighter 5 years, currently Registered Nurse. Can confirm, the hose lay is picked up by a team at the end. These types of hose lays are done for water supply in rural regions due to lack of hydrants. The 5 inch hose is not coiled, as it can damage the hose, and cause wear and tear much earlier. The giant metal rings between each hose section would also not allow good coil.

Why use a lot of time and men, when you could lower both?

I know you're probally like 18 and full of opinions, but this is the optimal way. I don't have the patience to explain to you optimal fire tactics. I'll just leave with this note.

It isn't about it being easy putting it back on the truck. It's about it being easy to pull off the truck.

I can think of a couple of simple designs that would make it very little work

This is a simple design...

And it isn't that much work to restack... It just takes a few people. Every fireman helps clean up at the end of the fire, no it isn't a problem.
