OriginEdit

Until the middle 19th century most fires were fought by water transported to the scene in buckets. Original hand pumpers discharged their water through a small pipe or monitor attached to the top of the pump tub. It was not until the late 1860s that hose became widely available to convey water more easily from the hand pumps, and later steam pumpers, to the fire.

In Holland, the Superintendent of the Fire Brigade, Jan van der Heyden, and his son Nicholaas took firefighting to its next step with the fashioning of the first fire hose in 1673. These 50-foot lengths of leather were sewn together like a boot leg. Even with the limitations of pressure, the attachment of the hose to the gooseneck nozzle allowed closer approaches and more accurate water application.

EffectsEdit

When even the sightest amount of moisture comes into contact with the hose, it will engorge and flail around wildly as if gallons of water were flowing through it. It will not stop until it is dried. It is stored around fire and heat realted artifacts in a vaccum-locked wrap so no moisture can get near it.

TodayEdit

Mr. Stall was able to find this artifact at a storage locker auction in Chicago, along with a few others. Some people there were surprised to see the hose, but Mr. Stall knew that they were sold online. It was returned to the Warehouse and securely stored.
