These two firefighters need to switch their roles. The one on the bottom of the ladder appears ready to go.
The one at the top in the window with fire above his head does not appear to have an SCBA on. At least I don’t see it on his back.
Wearing yous PPE completely and correctly is and should be mandatory.
There is fire above this firefighter and they are taking part in suppression efforts. He is at risk RIGHT NOW!
The firefighter should and probably does know better. But, that is why we need competent fire officers, to tell firefighters that get in too big of a hurry or forget, to put on their PPE.
Safety on the fire ground is everyone’s responsibility. It starts with us personally and then on to the officers.
Stand up and make safety a priority all the time. Stay safe and remember, EGH!
