    Well...here we go...

    I thought the video was cool partially because a classic song (who reminded me of a very influencial man; my first chief) has been re-done and I could (for once) appreciate a different interpretation of a much-loved favourite.

    I do not necessarily watch every cotton-picking video with firefighting imagery with the intent to pick it apart and play armchair quarterback. Sometimes, I identify with the people in the video and feel empathy for them when they are dealing with a particularly nasty situation. Not every video needs to be viewed as a training film, particularly if the intent is for it to be the backdrop to a song.

    That would be my .02 on the subject so I'll let you folks get back to your debate..............

    Default Clueless?

    Berks2Montco84 thinks...
    "What is it with firefighters who cut holes in a roof with fire VENTING all around them? There's absolutely no point to it, the fire's already venting! All you're doing is unnecessarily risking your life....."

    These type statements are what gives certain segments of the fire service a bad name. Before you go mouthing off about tactics, I would suggest having more than book knowledge in the subject. I would bet that if youre crawling the halls you would be praying there is an aggressive truckie on that roof popping the top. But then again, lets all stand outside and save the damn foundation. Hey, we could also use our new 1/2 million dollar tower ladder to play a master stream into the one story dwelling thru the window. Stick to parades my friend.

    That same thought crossed my mind but we donít know whatís under those roofs.
    Risk vs. benefit, itís the thin line between being aggressive and being stupid.

    Or being stupidly aggressive...

    Not to get into tactics...but when venting...OPEN THE BUILDING UP!!!! If it's one, or 200 holes..open it up. No use to keep that crap in there with you. One of the most favorite things I've ever done is aggressive roof venting on a flat, or almost flat roof. The best part in that vid, is when the guy is smacking the hell outt the roof with his axe, then throws it aside and just goes at the roof with the saw like a man possessed, I'd take him as my truckie any day.

    He was "sounding" the roof prior to cutting.

    What kind of saws are they using? They look like regular chainsaws. Maybe they are a Husqy or cutters edge and I'm not seeing it clearly? My department is looking for a nice saw to compliment the bulkier K12. Excellent video though...

    Copy and paste into your browser and it will prompt you to save the file. It is a Macromedia Flash Video file, so your options are limited ...
    That Nerd signal must be bright...

    I'm not sure if this will work, and I'm not able to test it at the moment, but download the 114744.flv file using BC79er's instructions, then download the zip file below.

    Unzip the file and place the resulting EXE and the FLV file both in the same directory and run the 114744.exe file.

    The EXE is a Flash player, created by me, using Macromedia Flash Professional 8 and should play the file without having Flash installed.

    (Even though I made the file and know it is virus free, please don't take my word for it & be sure to use an appropriate anti-virus scanner prior to running the program.)

    I found the video interesting. I don't have sound at work so I missed that part. It definitely shows some aggressive operations. I understand what inspection hole are and do use them. In the one clip I'd be nervous with where they were in that video. I just wouldn't want them that close behind my guys. When that lit up and the butt muscles tightened I wouldn't won't them to back up and drop a leg in one.

    I think that is the best part of this video training wise. That looked almost textbook to me.

    Stay Safe
