Our Department always uses the same seat as the attack seat, right behind the Driver. Even if the fire is on the other side of the engine.
We drill and drill on speed to the front door. I brought up a point that it might shave a little time off our attack if we would educate our people to switch assignments depending on what side of the engine the fire is on. Often my back up and myself cross at the rear of the apparatus to get to tools and cross lay…..not a lot of time and I am splitting hairs but sometimes seconds count with life and property. The same guys that stood up and said that ICS was a waste of time have already stated this would not work either.
Any thoughts on this I would love some feedback..
