I don’t normally post items right out of publications, but, this is just too important.

If you have already read this, bear with me.

I was finishing up my December issue of Fire Engineering and got to this article.  It was something I had thought about before but it has been awhile.

The picture you see is where the chief fell from the roof to the floor below.

I am attaching a link to the article, please read it and remember it.  If you have to make changes to the way you attack these buildings, do so.  Change the codes if you have the ability and stay safe out there.
