Inmate volunteer firefighter Joe Ahmad releases the pressure on a five-inch hose during a stress test on hoses at the LaFayette, Ga., fire department Monday. The tests, which are usually conducted at least once a year according to Chief Matthew Mann, require that hoses hold a certain number of pounds per square inch for three to five minutes. For five-inch hoses, that level is 200 psi.
