    Default Video for you monday morning QB's

    Here is a typical fire in my district. What you see is what we do at just about every house fire. I'm putting this on just because to be honest. I get a kick out of reading what you all argue about. So this should be an easy one for you all to tear apart enjoy!!!

    Well you can't say they didn't hustle.

    Good job to get exposure lines out and water flowing fast. The camera didn't show much other than the house, but good video nonetheless.

    Why even do an interior attack? What was the life risk? Wouldnt it be possible to handle this fire by playing lines thru the windows?


    Sorry, had to be the first to say it.

    Answers to the above questions...

    Because we are FFer, none that can be seen from outside, nope

    Great job, But hey they are from Texas what do you expect,
    But I will have to say there was a lot of editing on this video , or else that was the fastest knock down in history.

    To QB the QBs...

    (And although this will probably bring them out)

    I'm glad to see no one has had a nutty from the engineers(?) who where straightening out the hoselines in the 'warm zone' to help out the attack crews.

    Not much else you could do on a fire like that...

    ============================== ======
    For random speculation...

    Not often you see a ranch house fully involved on arrival (especially considering it's a staffed department, in the middle of the day, and looks lie there where neighbors around at the time). Seems to be a warm day -- wonder if they had all the windows open and/or house fans, maybe a breeze, that once the fire started it just was free to go everywhere.

    [QUOTE=PFDTruck18]Why even do an interior attack? What was the life risk? Wouldnt it be possible to handle this fire by playing lines thru the windows?


    The risk to a firefighter is always great. My station found that out ourselves on 2-19-05 when we lost our captain in a house fire much like this one, but at the same token there is a young women that is alive today because we went in and pulled her out in a fire worse then what you see here. So to me it is worth the risk. You just never know if someone is still alive.

    As for everyone complaining about the shaking camera...lol I'll pass on the message to all shifts to have their guys hold it better...

    I fully realize the risks. It was more or less a pre-emptive strike towards those that would say you should sit a gun on the front yard and play the water thru the window. I read the reports about your Captain and the job that stole him from you. Im sorry for your loss.
