First Due Friday; 2-Story Balloon Frame Rockin’ on the Peninsula

Share your strategies, tactics and experience!  Every Friday we’ll post a picture or video and want to get your take on the situation.

THE SCENARIO:  Watch the video of this heavily involved 2-story balloon frame house.  Note the wind and the exposures.  Give us your RECEO breakdown, initial actions and initial rig placement.  Have fun…

  • What is your initial report?
  • Rescue considerations?
  • Exposures?
  • Confinement issues?
  • Extinguishment strategies and tactics?
  • Overhaul, what areas will you focus initial searches for extension?
  • Rig placement?
