    Always. I've never been on a truck company before but anytime i'm on rescue or first-in engine and i know we're going to the roof or even 2nd floor or above i'll always bring the utility rope bag. i'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it....

    What type of rope? Life Saving Rope, utility rope?

    What type of building? Taxpayer, peaked roof PD? Probably not.

    Ha,ha. Truckies wonder why we break their balls. How are you going to put out a fire with a rope?
    I'm an engine man myself, but our truckies usually bring the tools they will need; Saw, axe, hook, roof ladder. They can cut the hole, pull the roof, knock in the sheet rock, and the roof ladder gives them a good seat to watch the engine work...

    How are we going to put out the fire with a rope? Well, we will save the guys trying to put the one out we are above so they can do it again!
