Regarding "Forestry Hose"
This is a classification of fire hose designed primarily for forest or wildfire applications. Its characteristics are particularily beneficial for use in that environment.
Specifically, forestry hose must be lightweight due to the extensive transport required by aircraft and on the backs of humans. Also, some hoses are "weeping" where the outer jacket becomes damp when in use in order to provide some self-protection from flying embers and hot spots on the ground. In order to achieve these characteristics, its ability to withstand rugged use and abuse may be somewhat less than other hose classes.
There is no rule preventing forestry hose from being used for other purposes, or restricting other hose classifications from being used in wildfire environments.
