    One building approx 100mtrs by 60mtrs well alight make pumps 5 ..turn table ladder 1 … Fire on the 3rd floor 2main lines …..into 3rd floor windows …request wind direction due to large amount smoke ..this all I would do as first pump in attendance … I wouldn’t commit any ba crews due to man power

      Thanks for your comments! It’s great to get feedback from England! I especially appreciate the difference in terminology, it’s neat to hear. Also thanks for thoroughly explaining your tactics. Check back anytime, hopefully we’ll hear from you again.

      Be Safe Brother,

    Time a bit advantage…hopefully not too many snoozers…First 2 lines to the top floor….begin primary searches and locate fire and attempt to hold in apt of origin. Two ladder companies to work…1st ladder co to open up on side in pic and rear (assuming #3/4 or C/D side) and 2nd ladder company to the roof…looks like frame construction and get it opened and check for extension. Third company stretch 3rd line to adjoining interior exposure to conduct primary, check for extension…and depending on size of building (hard to see in shot) …4th Engine and 3rd Ladder company to assist in evacuation and/completing primary/secondary and ventilation. Caveat…great if you have these resources available.

      Doug, thanks for your comments and great breakdowns. It would be nice to have those resources on every fire. Just curious, are you from somewhere in the NE? Just seeing if my detective skills are on point. Please keep in touch.

      Be Safe,
      Matt from SAFE Firefighter

Great ideas guys. Working in our SCBA is a must. When it comes to stretching...up to 30 seconds, but no benefit past that according to most research. A quick stretch after the warm up is also a good idea. Thanks for the work.

Fun workout. Tried to get crew involved, might take a little work. But fun none the less! I went for 40 minutes ....farmers carry 50lb dumb bells, ladder carry around station, step ups on a box (20), deadlifts (135 @ 15) shoulder press (45lbs 15) squats (20) fast walk around station.

Functional workouts are the best workouts. To many times I've watched as the big strong, weight lifers tend to run out of gas before the job is done. Thanks for putting this info together and stay safe!
