I would like to throw this one on the table…… Geographical side of a structure,
There seems to be much discussion lately about “sides of a structure”. What’s everyone’s thought? I was taught (many, many year’s ago…..yep I’m an ol’ salty) the “address” side of any structure is the “A” side. Some think it’s based on the way the structure is facing, meaning the front door is the “A” side, I disagree, the “A “side is always the side that faces the street no matter if it’s the back or side. Many structures now sit illogical on the lots (sideways, with side of structure facing the street and main entrance facing driveway etc.)
Additionally, most commanders use alphabetical directions (A, B, C, D) but I am beginning to hear some departments going to numerical (sector 1, being what most of us call the A). I use numbers for floor designations. I am not saying that anything is wrong with it, but in order for accurate information to be employed we all need to speak the same, especially those that we auto-aid and mutual-aid with. Stay safe out there my brothers & sisters.
