    opposite side is what should be done.... I'd say it was likely that he just was on his left and transitioned possibly right to break out the next window. I would be ok with it since he is working more overhead and not reaching far out to the right

    good thing the footman on the ladder turned the hook witht the pike end down just in case the guy overhead slipped. however he could foot it a little better.

    I see very little wrong with the whole picture.
    If your intent is to pick apart a photo you can surely find a better one almost anywhere you look.

    Thumbs down

    The biggest problem I see is that you didn't give credit to the off duty Denver firefighter that took the picture.

    I am sure he would appreciate it if you didn't STEAL his photos as I know that he would not be worried about such trivial leg lock BS.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    OH NO!!! he isn't ladder locking exactly how the FF1 book says too. He surely must have fallen seconds after this picture was taken.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    The problem!!!!

    They put the fire out! How dare they! Don't they know it's dangerous!

    Not to mention, at least one of them has some yellowish gear, all PPE should be BLACK.

    OH and that one guy, he is wearing gloves that were issued to him.

    The other one is using a tool that he didn't buy himself, the outrage!

    Oh, and that one on the ladder, his freaking shoes are UNTIED!

    C'mon people, get it together!

    I just checked the only other post this guy has made (helmet pic thread) and immediately recognized the department's rig in the background. It's not too far up the road from me, and before he starts casting stones, he ought to realize that anyone might know the goods on his department too.

    I think that she meant the other FF behind the roof ladder. He is too far away for a good leg lock

    The only problem I see is that they're only wearing one hood. And they should have the PPV set up at the front door.

    Gosh, don't take pictures of me... you wouldn't see a leg lock while doing that kind of work.

    I will sit in the penalty box for 2 minutes. My bad!

    Firefighter111, it’s obvious with only 2 posts that you are new here so don’t take the responses personally. You will soon find many here can’t wait to "correct" the well meaning poster with their wit and wisdom.
    Comments like “following National Standards”, “I do not see the safety officer with his bright pink safety vest on monitoring the scene”, “all PPE should be black” and “shoes are untied” are all met to be humorous. So don’t take it to heart.

    BTW, I did take a second look at the photo I did notice a serious safety issue. The pavement is wet This could easily lead to a slip and fall. Absorbent material should be immediately deployed before continuing firefighting operations.

    Your title is clearly rhetorical. What is the problem here...? Beats me, you seem to see a problem, what exactly do YOU see wrong?
    If it keeps you on the ladder, it's a sound tactic...
