In the last few weeks I posted about being aggressive. In that post I mentioned that we, our department, will search without a hose line. Â This seemed to raise some eyebrows and concern about what I said.
This podcast addresses what I mean by that and some ways to search without the hose line in your hands.
We train and operate in a manner that allows our crews to search unattached to a hose line. For good reason too because we have trained and drilled and found that we are delaying one tactic or the other when we search strictly off of the hose line while making the attack.
We allow the fire to grow unchecked and we delay the search for victims when we are trying to do both at the same time.
It’s critical that you train and operate within your resources and SOG’s.
Thanks for listening and take care.
