I am currently developing SOG's for our department. A debate has arisen out of one of the proposed guidelines.
When there is a working fire in progress and the first due engine arrives to a building that is both sprinklered and has standpipes, what is the operational priority assuming that you have a secure source of water. The general consensus is that the sprinkler stystem should have priority but I have a few that feel the standpipe should be the firsst operational priority.
I would be very interested to hear what other departments are doing in similiar circumstances.
