I've read a few of these, so I thought I would try doing one myself.
You can smell it coming through the neighborhood. Communications is advising they have received multiple calls. All of the units on the assignment, (4 engines, 2 trucks, 1 rescue squad and a chief), are fully staffed. Engines have three men and special services have 4 men. You can hear the second due engine screaming into the neighborhood a few streets over. You tell your wagon driver the hydrant is in front of 6112. Two houses before the address on the other side of the street.
Anyone care to take it from here?
Tell me anything you would normally do when presented with this situation. For example, radio transmissions, tactical decisions, organization of priorities, considerations...etc.
Please give your input. When the thread seems to burn out, I will tell you what we did. The fire pictures were all taken the night of 7-11-2009. I was on the first arriving wagon, running the line.
