Firefighters’ Bucket Brigade Spotlight: Cleaning the Fire Hoses

Thursday, May 26, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m 
Today at the Firefighters’ Bucket Brigade for the American Red Cross you will get to meet Northeast Wisconsin firefighters and American Red Cross disaster volunteers who will tell you about their partnership and the firefighters’ lifesaving equipment. We know that when thefire fighters leave a scene of a disaster their work isn’t done but even here at the American Red Cross we learned something new this year about the work our firefighter partners do.
The Disaster Team is hard at work when they are not on the scene with many hours of training and preparation just like the hardworking firefighters but something we never had to think about is how to clean the fire hoses. Thanks to Lt. Nick Craig from the Green Bay Fire Department we learned a little bit more a firefighters’ work back at the station and he showed us how the fire hoses are cleaned.
