Nozzle Person 1 – Nozzle Person 1 is first on the starting line closest to the hydrant. Upon the starting signal nozzle person 1 grabs the nozzle and runs down the street to the second set of couplings. Nozzle person 1 breaks the hose with Drag person at the second couplings. Nozzle person 1 faces the targets during the break. Nozzle person one then connects the 2 ½ nozzles to the male 2 ½ hose ends, connecting to the drag line second. Nozzle person 1 then uses the drag line to stray down the target. Any “turns” on the nozzle/coupling connections result in a second penalty per turn.
Wye Person – The wye person is second on the starting line. Upon the starting signal the wye person grabs the wye and runs down the street to the first set of couplings. The wye person breaks the couplings with the nozzle person 2 facing the targets. After the break the wye person places their knee directly behind the male coupling on the hose and connects the wye. Once the connection is started they tell the nozzle 2 person they are on. The wye person finishes their connection as well as the nozzle 2 person connection. Any turns on any of the wye connects result in a second(s) penalty.
Hydrant Person – The hydrant person is third on the starting line in the middle of the street. Upon the starting signal the hydrant person grabs the hydrant wrench, runs to the female end of the hose on the hydrant line, grabs the hose and proceeds to the hydrant. The hydrant person then spins the 2 ½ cap off of the hydrant and connects the hose. The hydrant person then “floods” the first length of hose by turning the hydrant on slowly. When the drag man indicates they are connected to the wye at the first couplings by yelling “water” the hydrant man turns the hydrant on the rest of the way. The hydrant person turns the hydrant off after the target is knocked down. Any turns on the hydrant hose connection result in a second(s) penalty.
Nozzle Person 2 – The nozzle person 2 is fourth on the starting line away from the hydrant. Upon the starting signal nozzle person 2 runs down the street to the first couplings and breaks with the wye person with their back to the targets. After the wye person connects the wye to the first length of hose and says they are “on” the nozzle person 2 connects the female end of the 2nd length of hose to the wye, opposite of where the drag person is coming into the wye. The connection should be made about half way. After connected half way, nozzle person 2 leaves the wye and runs down the street to the second set of couplings, takes the nozzle and sprays down the target.
Drag Person – The drag person is fifth on the starting line farthest away from the hydrant. Upon the starting signal the drag person takes the nozzle and runs down the street to the second couplings and breaks with nozzle person 1 with their back to the targets. After the break the drag person “drags” the third hose length between their legs to the wye and connects the female end of the hose to the wye. Once connected they yell for water and finish their connection. Any turns on any of the wye connects result in a second(s) penalty.
