    Excelent post, Mr. Grimwood!

    I looked at the picture, assessed the situation and I did vote... and I chose wisely!

    I don't have a heck of alot of structure fire experience, but enough to know that! At least that's what I was taught. I hope it's right. Without spoiling anything, I have not seen as much closing of the doors behind the interior crews. Very interesting stats on that. Those are new to me.

    Great post!

    Thanks for the post! I too "read the fire" and made a good choice. Since we don't see as much fire as we used to around here... it is good to know that you still retain some of those skills that experience give you!

    If you read the article surrounding the question, it explains what the correct answer is and why.

    I know. I meant that as I've been taught that way, trained that way, and fought fires that way so I HOPE it's right. Kind of like in a joking sense. It's unfortunate that I'm not really very funny .
    Thanks though,

    Paul, what happened to your site? It is now a Task Force Tips website??? I was going to print out the article and take it to work for a little discussion.

    erics99 -

    Thanks for pointing that out! The site went down last night. It has been hosted 'free' on TFT's servers since 1999 and they advertise throughout the site in return. This saves me a whole lotta money as it's a BIG site



    I have relayed the problem to TFT and hopefully the Firetactics.com site will be up and running again soon!

    Thanks again.

    Damn, I'm away from the forums for a couple of days when finally a really good thread starts, and then by the time I get back again the link isn't working.
