Nozzle Forward
Instructed by:  Aaron Fields
 
Nozzle Forward is a two-day course designed for engine/pump company crews. It is not a collection of techniques; it is an adaptable system of hose line management and fire attack. It is focused around fighting fire, interior offensive firefighting and aggressive firefighting.  It is an ongoing development of an in-depth study of all things engine/pump. It is not a “what if” class, it is a program designed to engrain the nozzle team to make the right choice and be able to accomplish whatever task is necessary for a successful interior attack. It is not theory; it is proven on fire grounds around the United States. It is adapted from a variety of sources, but is based on simple principles that maximize mechanical advantage. 
 
This class answers the “what's” and the “whys” and quickly creates a system that can be adopted to fit any engine/pump company from the urban to the rural. The goal of The Nozzle Forward is to help craft more efficient engine/pump companies by increasing the individual’s competency with their tools and by expanding on the conceptual aspects of the fire environment. The course will integrate the three major components of engine/pump company work: fire behaviour, hose management and fire attack. For more information please visit our website – nozzleforward.com
