    When im workin with my volly dept. one person gets out of the truck and stretches the line, the others get out put on SCBA go on air, they take over the line and fight the fire while the first FF gets packed up. Only person not on air is the FAO. If we run short and only have 2 FF respond one stretches the line the other packs up, the one on air starts the attack from a distance while the other packs up and is the 2nd man on the line. To clarify that first firefighter that pulls the line and is not wearing SCBA stays away from the smoke and the car. Our chief feels that since our district board purchased the equipment for a reason (protecting the firefighters from toxins) we should use the d@mn things!

    Oh and my fulltime job, no air pack unless we have to use a handline for mop up, initial knock down is done using the bumper turret!

    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    Exactly. And if you float the trash out the top and it smells like hot garbage for a week or so, they may quit setting them on fire to begin with.

    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.
