First off apologies for not getting this up yesterday, it was a busy day at the firehouse (unfortunately not call wise) and I had my second to last ALS class in the evening so I was strapped for time.
Anyway here is the second “Safety and Survival Week” video I am sure a lot of you have seen this one as it has been featured and sold on www.thebravestonline.com
In it depicts a large commercial occupancy (which in my area we would call a high-rise). During the interior operations a Captain becomes lost, disoriented, and runs out of air.
Again like the last video the point of this week is to analyze the situation and to figure out how we can survive if faced with similar situations, or prevent them from happening in the first place.
So sit down today (alone or with your crew) and ask What could have been done to prevent this MAYDAY? Was the MAYDAY given enough information? If you were the IC what would your actions have been? If you were the RIT/RIC team leader what would your actions be (include equipment)?
Please feel free to leave any feedback, and or comments in the comments section, email, or twitter. The blog is fun, but even more fun when we get a good conversation going. If there was ever a week were we should be talking this is it.
