Stockton, California Working:A Little ‘Shot in The Arm’ for the Fire Service

First-in footage at Stockton working fire.

 

Yesterday was a crappy day for the fire service, but life goes on. You can't change the past, but you can learn from it.

The next day requires you to be focused, determined and smarter than yesterday.

You owe it to the fallen, the survivors and the families.

Check the rigs, the tools and mentor the new guy.

Life's short. Pray Hard.

    In my opinion … I think this company did an exemplory job. On scene fully involved Wood structure with heavy Flames showing exposure A and B as well as 1st and 2nd floors.  They we're able to get the wet stuff on the red stuff and save this structure within 4min.  Sure they had a few minor glitches but they got the job done! truck placement was good the only major Ooops I noticed (not being on the scene) was the second team in (on ladder) failed to check to see if there was a Floor left inside the 2nd floor before entering the window.  Great Job Team!

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…
