Suction Hose - #10 - Baldwinsville, NY

During our September 2020 drill in Baldwinsville, NY we were able to grab a couple of photos of Mottville Engine 2 using multiple suction hoses at the dump site. Of special note was the use of several lengths of suction hose to reach a dump tank set up to the rear of the rig. The dump tank had a side wall flange allowing for an easy connection and no "hose hump" over the tank frame. This set-up is another good example (in a long line of many) for why it is important to carry more than the standard 20-ft of suction hose on a rural pumper.
