Did you find what you were looking for ?  I work for LACOFD since 92í ....in reality youíll find there is no standard.  Almost every rig is allowed to customize there loads and lengths.  There is only a minimum footage that is required.

 Thank you "truckman". When I saw that question, I wondered myself and then hearing that each company hose loads and lengths is custom for it's area, kind of surprised me.

 Welcome to this NYC Fire Dept site. We don't get guys too often from your side of town (Calif). I know that Elwood E., from Tenn, aka CFDMarshall, has been out there and also this site administrator, Retired FDNY Capt John B., aka "jbendick" has a good friend out there.

 I was out there in 1984. Not too many of us here in the northeast can relate to those brush fires like you guys get.

 If you can, send me a PM (NFD2004) and I'd like to tell the guys here about you and where you work.

 Of course if you ever get out here, we'd do our best to show you around.

Occasionally youíll get shift wars with one shift wanting a load one way then the other shifts looses it or surrenders.  Thatís about as exciting as our hose loads get...I always felt I was born atleast 2000 miles too far west.  The brush fires...lol.  Itís just cyclical here.  The rich folk/hipsters like living in the brush in Malibu and other parts no matter what...they end up getting burned out every 30-50 years.  All you can do is hold it at the ocean...or let it go into the next county...lol.  Iím not trying to sound salty.  When I first came on we burnt half of Malibu down in 93í.  They said weíre safe for another 50 years. Yup not so much ...Iíve Seen those new house re-built that are ďfire resistiveĒ burn down again. Then they got right back in and build. Boggles the mind.  It does make good pics for hell on earth images and the best sunsets. It blows my mind guys burning up crews and rigs for this....I guess itís what we like to do.
