    Default Go Get it or wait?

    Just looking for some input as to what differnet departments do when it comes to grass fires. Do you drive out in the field/wetland to get it or do you wait for it to come to you and suround it and let it burn to you?

    A lot of variables here...Wind, Fuels loading, access, fire behavior, and a couple of other things. Tactics can go anywhere from there. Burning out, waiting, anchor and flank, mobile attack, and ect.
