ok thanks I understand now, seems an odd setup, but as we're unlikely to get a new appliance anytime in the forseeable future it will all have changed by then I'm sure.

You never know Dave, your brigade does more than 2 calls a year so there is hope for a new one yet :-D

Been used elsewhere for a long time, but you do need to train driver/operators to only use tank fill off the fire-ground, & use pump inlets for all operational work. Not hard to do. I question whether the supposed laziness is on the part of the operators or the officers/trainers.

I'm still curious as to why 'Tank Fill' exists at all...?

Is it that hard to refill via the collectors and backfill during pumping operations?

As an American comrade once said "and so continues the pussification of the fire service"
To think they employed me as a drooling retard...

Numbers, that has to be the word of the day! Pussification...  Everything is being affected by it in life.

The entire first world is becoming lazy, illogical, etc.    We will be begging asia for nutrition one day me thinks...50, 100 years?
