Do fire hoses burn?

  • If you or your department has experienced a burn-through of a fire attack hose, please complete this brief online survey. Researchers at WPI are creating the first and only publically available, searchable data base which tracks burn-through’s across the US. This project is funded by The Last Call Foundation which was established in memory of fallen fire fighter Michael Kennedy.
