Re: Nfpa 1500 Vs. Cfr 1910?
Someone has to take initial command of an incident, and if there is life being threatened, the 2 in 2 out rule goes out the window. One way around it all is adequate staffing!

in 1500, the "2 out" are permitted to do several outside duties, and these were spelled out in the appendix. two or three examples of how a 4 person crew could be assigned. one of those examples is to have 2 f.f. on hose (2-in), 1 f.f. on pump, and co.officer at the door(2-out). BUT the federal standard says that only one of the outside can take on another task. so, how do you do it? how do you split up the 4 person crew and meet the federal standard?
