Members spent an hour after the fire testing out the Task Force Tip “Vortex” nozzle. Seeing what its all about and if it would operationally work for our department. We do not purchase anything on these firetrucks without first testing them ourselves. The “Vortex” is a smooth bore nozzle with directional baffles at the tip. A quarter turn of the barrel actuates the baffles to produce a broken fog stream. The nozzle would give our long lines another option and be able to keep a lower pump pressure. (We have not yet purchased these nozzles. We are still in the testing phase) Thank You to St Thomas FD for letting us borrow the nozzle.
