On a side note, Stephen Walsh captures more than Boston fires. The time he doesn’t spend roaming the suburbs for working fires he devotes to being President of the International Fire Photographers Association. Chances are there is someone in your department, or buffing your calls, who is good with a camera and composition. Let them know about the IAFP.

Bill.. I agree with Tony C. The situations we respond to sometimes reuire that we tune and tweak SOPs and SOGs "on the fly" in order to complete the tasks given. Fire doesn't care what is stated in our SOPs/SOGs.

A great read, Bill. I see so much of this in the fire service. I forgot to pull up my hood on the last fire and I didn't get burned. I didn't buckle my waist strap on the last fire and I didn't get tangled up. I didn't check my bottle before my last fire…
