Their is a roofman on all Ladder Companies. The 1st due and 2nd Due roof team up once on the roof. They however do not wait for each other.
The OVM also operates on his own..either in the bucket...or VESing off a ladder or fire escape...usually opposite the fire. This position is usually given to the 2nd most senior man on the rig...the most senior is usually the Chauffuer.
