Let me clear something up. I know this fire is a write off no matter what.
The intention here is to explore what we would do if this fire was one that victims were present in and was only smoke showing.
I am curious about how to handle an event where we are faced with adversity: inaccessibility and conditions that deem a rescue possible.
I have to tell you that when I saw this picture many thoughts ran through my head.
With the recent events in regards to natural disasters, this picture got my attention.
This is a picture from Hurricane Ike. I know this building is pretty well involved and as you can see, the street is flooded.
But, what if this was your area and you had this situation with confirmed victims? Now, let’s pretend for the sake of discussion you are the first arriving unit.
For those that deal with this, how do you pre-plan this kind of event and what would you do?
I have to admit, this situation is very remote in my area, but possible and we have never discussed a scenario like this. So, I’m flying by the seat of pants on this one as well.
Let’s hear what you all have to say.
(Thanks for all of the support and great replies so far, it is very humbling and appreciated.) Now back to business, how do we handle this situation?
