Abstract/Summary

We, Team AHC, have designed, manufactured, and tested an advanced firehose clamp for wildland firefighters to use during extended hose lays. The clamp is designed to stop high-pressure water flow in a firehose so that a new length of hose can be added. The current industry standard, the Timberline hose clamp, is expensive and wears down over time effecting the speed and success of hose lays. Our goal was to improve firefighter's tools and therefore improve fire fighting effectiveness.
