First Due Friday; Heavy Smoke from a Commercial

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

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

I got this pic a while ago but now I can’t remember where I got it.  Since Berwyn Heights is in the pic, I’ll give the credit to the Brothers at Co. 14.
