A Fire Hose Reel is a cylindrical spindle that is made from plastic, metal, or fiberglass. A hose reel brings water or foam for extinguishing the fire. A fire hose provides an immediate supply of pressurized water or other extinguishing agent that helps in combating the fire quickly.

On the other side, a hose reel can be portable by attaching it to other firefighting devices such as fire hydrant or fire engine.
The fire hose reel is suitable for the fire caused by the burning of paper, wood, plastic, and textile. But we cannot use fire hose on chemical and electrical fires because water is a conductor of electricity and using water can add fuel to the fire.

When you note that the fire breaks out in your building, firstly you have to alert people near you about the fire with help of a fire alarm or bell.

Proceed to a safe distance from the fire and turn the water on by operating the nozzle. Direct the water at the base of the flame and extinguish the fire by using sweeping action.
After extinguishing the fire, the fire hose is usually hung to dry because the standing water can deteriorate the material. Most of the buildings have a hose tower for this purpose.
The standard NFPA 1961 defines the design and construction requirements for new fire hose, the testing required to verify the design and construction, and maintenance compliance. The working pressure is between is
According to this standard 116 and 290 psi but according to the fire hose standard, its bursting pressure is 1600psi. It is necessary to convey water either from an open water supply, or a pressurized water supply.
For the successful operation of the fire hose reel, it must be maintained. The maintenance of the fire hose reel requires the following measures:
