P-R PHOTO/GABE DICKENS Lt. Cory Crahan (from left) watches as Staff Writer Felicia Krieg practices using the fire hose in the Skyway Shopping Center's parking lot, while Branden Zylstra and Jim Ackerman help out. So much backwards force comes from the hose when the nozzle is fully open that it takes at least two firefighters to distribute the load.
