By definition, master stream devices flow in excess of gpm
What is a disadvantage of using the stinger in the deck-gun configuration?
It may require the engine apparatus to park in close proximity to the fire to ensure the proper reach and penetration, thus placing the engine in a potentially dangerous position
What is the purpose of the limiter pin?
On the portable monitor it prevents the nozzle from being accidentally rotated too low
The RAM is stored with a break-away combination nozzle rated at gpm at psi
Master stream smoothbore tip sizes range in size from and are pumped at psi nozzle pressure.
1⅜" to 2"
When using the LDH ball valve instead of the manifold, the directional arrow will also point

The pump rating on a patrol unit is GPM and carries gallons of water?
What is the difference in the couplings on a 1 ½” wildland hose and a 1” wildland hose?

How much does 100’ of dry 1 1/2” wildland hose weigh?
The 1" wildland nozzles are a dual gallonage nozzle with two flow settings of gpm and gpm at psi nozzle pressure
What is a Temporary Refuge Area or TRA?
temporary shelter and short-term relief such as the leeward side of a structure, inside structure, or parking lot, or in the cab
What is the 1st set of strategic considerations that should be identified for a wildland fire?
