NFPA 1410 Evolution 1: Forward Lay

training scenario created by IncidentSmart


This evolution is a forward lay using one engine and one supply line, from a hydrant to the fire scene. The companies will then deploy an attack line and a backup line. The company is permitted to use tank water to supply the attack line, but must have an established hydrant supply prior to charging the backup line. All lines shall be completely deployed from their hosebeds All nozzles should be flowing the minimal accepted preasures Timing starts when given a signal by the training officer, and ends when the required 300 GPM flow is being delivered. The maximum recommended time for this evolution is 3 minutes.

1. Stage

Begin by staging your apparatus away from the fire scene.

2. Secure the Water Source

Proceed to the water source. When the engine stops time for this evolution starts. Drop one firefighter at the water source. This firefighter should take supply lines from the engine, wrap the hydrant and signal for the engine to continue to the fire scene.

3. Lay Supply Lines

The engine should then continue to the fire scene. The engine should be placed into pump. The driver will connect the supply lines from the water source to the intakes, while two other firefighters advance an attack line 150'. After a 30 second delay the second engine can proceed to the fire scene.

4. Advance Backup Line

The personnel from the second engine should deploy a backup line from the first engine. The evolution is complete when both lines are flowing at the correct rate and pressure.
