If heavy fire showing on arrival in a store, consider the use of what to attack the fire? and what size of lines for exposures?
Portable Ground monitor
Two - 2 1/2" lines in the exposure stores

800 GPMs is the max with this base
GPM is reduced by 100 for every __" reduction in Nozzle Diameter
The Exposures to the left and right are referred to as
Bravo and Delta starting from the closest out
Example: B4B3B2B1 Fire D1D2D3D4
