NFPA 1410 Evolution 10: Elevated Master Stream and Handline

training scenario created by IncidentSmart


In this evolution a truck company will operate a master stream appliance while an engine company secures a hydrant, pumps back to the truck, and advances a hand line. This evolution is complete when the master stream appliance is flowing at 500 GPM and the hand line is flowing 200 GPM. This evolution should take a maximum of 5 minutes and 30 seconds to complete.

1. Stage

Start by staging apparatus away from the fire scene.

2. Truck to Fire Scene

The truck should proceed to the fire scene. Time begins when the truck stops at the fire scene. All firefighters should exit the truck, and the truck should begin setting up to deploy their elevated master stream device.

3. Engine to Fire Scene

The engine should proceed to the fire scene after a 30 second delay. The engine should stop at the truck, remove supply lines, and secure them. Once secured the engine should proceed to the water source, and the elevated master stream should be connected to the supply lines.

4. Secure Water Source and Flow Water

The engine should then proceed to the water source laying at least 300' of supply lines. The engine will be placed into pump, secure the water source and supply the elevated master stream.

5. Deploy Hand Line

While the engine is securing the water source a handline shall be deployed from the engine at least 150'. When both the master stream and the handline are flowing at the correct rates and pressures the scenario is complete.
