    DrP.....here's my take on it. Not Every building that is vacant, is in shambles. New construction for one...comes to mind. No utilities yet or not turned on, no tenenents....just about done....etc, etc. I know in my area skells will seek these out for shelter(especially during work stoppages). These buildings are "vacant"......

    A good firemen knows the difference between making a ballzy move and suicide.....just my take on it....but...things can and will go wrong.

    Stay safe.

    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    Well stated. This is basically my position on the matter as well.
