What Are the Two Main Uses of Fire Hose?

The two main uses of fire hose for suction and delivery/supply. The suction (or intake) use of fire hose allows the fire department’s pumper to connect to the necessary source. Once the fire hose in connected, it can be used to deliver/supply water to the area that’s on fire.
