|Fire Hose Care & Maintenance|
|Fire hose should be stored in cool, dry and well ventilated conditions. When loaded on a fire appliance or vehicle it should be stowed in such a way that air circulation can take place and that excessive chaffing against the sides of vehicle lockers due to vibration is minimised.
Once a pressure test is carried out the external surface of the hose should be examined for cuts, gouges, scorch marks and abraded areas.
After contact with oil or chemicals, a mild detergent may be applied to the affected area using a stiff brush. Then the area should be washed down using copious quantities of clean water.
|Care in Use|
|Maintenance after Use|
|Type 3 covered hoses – after normal use, the hose may be wiped down with a damp cloth and stored in a cool, dry, well ventilated place. Recoupled hose should always be subjected to examination and proof pressure testing to ensure coupling retention and to avoid detachment during use.|
