This is an updated guide to the technology and equipment used in the fire service. This edition gives consideration to a number of developments including: the obligations placed upon the privatized water undertakers to reduce leakage which have resulted in lower mains operating pressures which, in turn, have created problems regarding water for firefighting; the increasing use made by brigades of large diameter hose and the means to deploy and retrieve it; initiatives regarding the development of flowmetering and of automatic pump and tank fill controls; and a greater emphasis on safe working practices.
