    - no the housing I was speeking of is not 2600''..

    - and a collapse roof would not always kill you but could possibly leave you unexpectedly surrounded by fire.. And when I threw this scenario out I WANSNT RESPONDING TO YOU. And yes it's all very unlikely and could be avoided with an experienced crew (which unfortuantely won't always be the case)

    - I've been a fireman for 8 years... (no I'm sure not a tenth as long as you) At a house that runs a combined total of about 7000-8000 calls a year between 1 rescue- 1 engine- and 1 tiller truck (which only responded to fires, confirmed pins, and spec op calls.. The truck I've been on for the past 4 years) NOt bragging or saying that's a lot, just want you to understand I do have a little EXPERIENCE!

    I never once was trying to be smart or say you were wrong.. Seriously I meant no negative things towards you!! Can't we just all get along!?!? I've read a lot of posts on this forum that you've posted and you always give good advice.. I was just saying I might do things differently! Be happy!! Oh and happy valentines day!!
    Alright Tommy Boy we are cool. Why did you change your name?

    Happy Valentines Day to you too!
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    There are some interesting replies here. Like others have said, it depends. There are very few absolutes in the fire service.

    We stretch the line dry, as far as conditions safely permit. I've called for water in the street, the yard, the hallway, the fire floor, and yes, even in the fire room. In all cases conditions dictated. In all cases size up gave us clues as to what we were dealing with.
