We've all been to them. Not really much to talk about right??? Well if thats the case then why are so many of us lacking the proper training and techniques to keep ourselves safe? I'm wondering what are your s.o.g.'s/s.o.p's on responding to them, what ppe is required, and does everyone actually pack out? I have just recently had a friend get hurt on one of these "routine not much to them car fires." He said that his department is changing thier policies and techniques to avoid this from happening again but why did it have to come to that. Just hit me up and let me know your feelings on the matter maybe we can come up with better ways to train and get ourselves out of the bad habits we're all guilty of before one of us has a first hand account of the matter
Our department has recently changed the way we fight car fires. We now do a defensive attack unless there is a person in danger........We can't be putting our guys in danger more than we already are.
Remember if you see the fire on a vehicle the vehicle is a total loss.
We risk a lot to save a lot but risk nothing to save nothing.
