A look Inside the Command Post SBFD Company and Chief Officers arriving on scene and their Size-Up process. This video clip shows the importance of matching the strategic mode with the “standardized principles of risk” This is a two story 4-unit apartment building that is vacant & abandoned. The IC does a good job of making sure that when there is nothing to save then nothing will be risked. This is not always so easy, because as firefighters we often get used to an aggressive interior fire attack. It is imperative to really look at the building construction, fire involvement and the condition of the structure before deploying resources to the interior of a building that is already lost.
A look at the first arriving company and chief officers as they arrive on scene, give their size-up, perfrom a dynamic risk assessment of the situation, start developing an IAP and building the IC system. This video shows a working commercial fire as well as three apartment fires, one of which is vacant and abandoned.
