Smiffy, the water jet is controlled by a fireman at the engine I think, no fireman and the end of the water jet.  (my photos)

I saw on You tube recently they have a 'spike' which can be attached to a lift platform or a separate arm which can smash through tiles and then spray water into a roof space without a fireman near.

Modern day firefighting.

This is one of my photos I took of the fire at the pavilion in Brompton yesterday, not many firemen fighting the fire, not so many needed nowadays I guess.  I just wonder how many firemen and appliances would have been needed to tackle the same fire if it had happened years ago?
