Heres a quick knowledge nugget about hydrant shearing, and how it is designed to break. This is from a call I just ran. Upon vehicular impact, the traffic flange ring fractures to allow the above ground hydrant assembly to cleanly separate without damage to the internal parts causing a watery mess. The hydrant stem is separated upper and lower with a coupling designed to break. With both these features, hopefully the hydrant shears without damage to the internal components. #firetactraining#enginecompany#truckie#goestojobs#trainyourprobie#chiefmiller#hydrant

🔥The Seattle Rapid Access Tool🔥
This is just for demonstration purposes, the screws were removed beforehand. Deadbolts come in many different forms. "Through the lock" is always an option to minimize damage to the door. If you carry a halligan you should also carry the SEARAT. Using the forks to shear the two screws holding the face of the deadbolt, you can then use or tool to manipulate the bolt. 🔥FOLLOW @ignitionusa🔥
Was hoping to be able to spend some Christmas and new years time at home this year but I guess that would be to easy for my life 🙄 wish people would live up to there word or atleast be honest but I guess some find satisfaction in pushing someone over the edge just cos there life is going fine. I hate Christmas time but I’m lucky enough to get these kind of stints and punch out some work away. #harvest#truckie#roadtrain#cbh#esperance 🙄
