Next Generation Fire Attack Hose Grant

LAST CALL FOUNDATION IS SEEKING RESEARCHERS TO STUDY AND APPLY CURRENT THERMAL TECHNOLOGIES TO FIRE HOSE.

$ 100,000

Last Call Foundation call for proposals.

Research, education, and collaboration are critical to enhancing the safety and wellbeing of firefighters and the communities they serve.  The public is safer when the heroic firefighters responding to their alarms are safer.

The Last Call Foundation is funding another grant to develop a Next Generation Fire Attack Hose that is fire resistant and meets the diverse needs of the fire service during fire ground operations. (Please see NFPA 1961 and NFPA 1962)

The goal of Last Call Foundation is to have safe, reliable fire attack hose in the hands of each and every firefighter so that firefighters can trust in and rely on the hose – their lifeline.

Firefighter Michael Kennedy’s hose burned through, preventing the delivery of water in a time of critical need.  Unfortunately, this happens more often than anyone realized, fire hose failure has not been accurately documented with resulting injury and death being reported as a result of hose failure.

The development of a fire resistant and ultimately fireproof fire hose is certainly an attainable goal and reasonable expectation for the fire service.
