Abstract
The purpose of this report is to collect, compile and complement the scientific and experience based knowledge concerning high pressure fire fighting today. The goal is to produce a decision data for the Rescue Service concerning the use of high pressure systems for fire fighting. Focus is on hose reel high pressure systems but other systems are discussed too. The report begins by describing the technical properties of the different systems. Then the fire fighting properties are evaluated, including manoeuvrability and safety for users. There is a brief chapter describing economy related to the different types of systems. Technical and non-technical aspects of high pressure fire fighting are finally discussed and together with the rest of... (More)

Technical and non-technical aspects of high pressure fire fighting are finally discussed and together with the rest of the report are basis for a number of conclusions drawn. One of the conclusions is that the foremost advantage using 40 bars high pressure systems are shorter time of attack and reduced use of water. (Less)
