Slicing and Dicing with Bobby Halton

Google chat had more mnemonics than a Swiss Army knife has foldouts

Fire Engineering Editor-in-Chief Bobby Halton had Lieutenant Ray McCormack and Chief Eddie Buchanan on discussing the currently popular SLICERS and DICERS fireground strategy being pushed around and debated on the internet. If you missed the live show here is the taped version,

I posed the question “How should a FD begin using SLICERS? We don’t expect them to change at the next fire; there’s transition in learning and application.” seeing how there is a gap between research findings and developing practical application. Chief Buchanan will be answering that in a later post.
