How might you handle a similar situation?
There is great value in talking about those incidents with successful outcomes
I'm sure this video will spark some reader discussion...
From reviewing the clip, this appears to be a well-executed, coordinated, and safe performance of a fairly standard firefighting evolution that we all (should have) learned during basic recruit training and/or in the fire academy.
While this is certainly a difficult scenario to practice, when was the last time you and your crew talked about how you might handle a similar situation?
Were there any other strategic or tactical options available to the incident commander? Do your department's standard operating procedures call for the same (or different) actions?
We often spend a lot of time commenting on incidents where things didn't go well, but there is also great value in talking about those with successful outcomes.
