Top Issues Facing Responders:
How the new homes are built so air tight and the compound of the wood isn't what it was years ago, When a house was on ifre 15 years ago the floor would be safe to walk on for 20 minutes, in todays homes it's safe for less then 7 minutes, if a victim is trapped in a house and the floor only last 7 minutes, then the home builder has just placed more then one persons life in danger.
