History[edit]

Firefighters consistently had problems with maintaining correct nozzle pressure on fire pumps.[citation needed] Task Force Tip nozzles were designed to resolve this problem. They adjust to the different pressures in the hose. Chief Clyde McMillan[who?] was working with the Gary Fire Task Force[who?] in 1971, when he designed an automatic nozzle on a napkin in 1968 and constructed it in his basement. Today,[when?] the company continues innovating through research and development.[1] Task Force Tips manufactures and distributes fire fighting nozzles and equipment in more than 60 countries.[1]
