Scenarios

What is this you ask? Here's how it works, someone posts a hypothetical response (fire, ems, haz-mat) and anyone can reply with what they would do if they were first on the scene or the Incident Commander. There are no right or wrong answers because these are based on your experiences or knowledge in fire scene management. In other words, what would you do...

By The Side of the Road

This forum was inspired as I passed by an old fire truck sitting off one of the freeway exits as I drive to work. Are there old fire trucks sitting off the side of the road where you go frequently? If you go on vacation, do you stop and say hi to old trucks sitting lonley in the corn field? Let's talk about them and hey, why not grab some photos while your at it. Maybe someone out there is looking for their department's long lost truck and you can be the key. Any information you can get from the truck would be great in helping track it down. Maybe we'll start the first fire truck adoption program in the country.
