Supression tactics for low manpower?
I work Ems for a rural service. The fire dept is 100% volunteer... well on paper. The ambulance crews are cross trained and do both. We have a bad shortage of active members...at my sta. there are 2, so if a structure fire comes out in our area it is the ems crew and 1 or 2 firefighters for 15-20 mins before 2nd in. The ems crew packs up but if we go in and something happens then our butts are toast b-c there is no backup. Also this is dumb tactics forever here, the exterior attack is shuned, say anything about a fog patern and you will get looked at like you have 12 heads. We use automatics on 1.75 with flow rates to 275, but its got to be 125. so here you go have at it
