Nicol Hose Hook Co. is located in Prince George, Va., and is owned by John Nicol, who is a career Firefighter/EMT with the City of Hopewell, Va.
The idea and design of the hose hook came from working with large diameter hose while training with firefighters and watching firefighters struggle to maneuver the hose to prevent kinks and reductions in water delivery and increasing friction loss. This tool almost negates the risks and chances of an injury to their backs, arms, or hands. This benefits the firefighter and his department in minimizing the potential for loss of manpower due to injury leave and expenses.
