disagree  Michael Farrell: Some colleagues criticize the Web as a terminology source and swear by printed dictionaries. This case shows you can't trust paper blindly either. Have you folks ever heard anyone say "fire-fighting hose"? Google gives 61 times more hits for "fire hose"!

  -> Nice of you to join us after 1,483 days, Michael. Actually, if you type in "firefighting", you get plenty of hits and from reputable UK sites, even the fire brigade. So maybe we can continue to trust Ferdinando?
