Colo. fire dept. tests new Swedish nozzles
It's going to be awhile before the department deploys the nozzles in the rigs, but it will probably happen sometime next year
LOVELAND, Colo. — Loveland Fire Rescue Authority members employed a new Swedish nozzle in a test fire Monday afternoon at the Loveland Fire & Rescue Training Facility.
Loveland Fire Rescue Authority officials have been testing firefighting theories using real furniture and carpet — not wooden pallets and straw, normally used in training — since Saturday.
"We are trying to look at the fire and its behavior," Battalion Chief Tim Smith said. "We are collecting a lot of data and footage and are able to see what is happening in these spaces."
