A fire hose is a high-pressure hose that carries water or other fire retardant (such as foam ) to a fire to extinguish it. Outdoors, it attaches either to a fire engine or a fire hydrant .
The usual working pressure of a firehose can vary between 8 and 20 bar while its bursting pressure can be up to 50 bar.
After use, a fire hose is usually hung to dry because standing water that remains in a hose for a long time can deteriorate the material and render it unreliable or unusable.
