    How about 'fully involved' when it is a room and contents?

    Now - I can see calling 'smoke showing' when the initial dispatch was an alarm drop.....

    How about calling for a unit to 'expedite' when it is already dispatched/responding hot?!?!

                Here is my take from my experience - didn't watch the video link, not really inerested.

                We make a high percentage of BS runs. Often the driver and officer have the only clear view of where we are headed, especially out in the distance. If while responding, it was clear that we would have something working just so the guys in the back would know it was game time. Not shout, not excited, just "hey guys, we got one."

                Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

                "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.

                  One reason could be that it's 33 operating in the video.

                    Got to agree with the LT from Memphis. I cant really see from the back of the cab, so if someone up front sees smoke in the sky or anything to indicate a fire its nice to have a heads up. Always prepared to go to work, but we got to a lot of false alarms so its nice to know. Its especially nice if we are going for an automatic alarm, smell of smoke, or some other call prone to false alarms. Its really only done if we are first in or if no one has called on location confirming the fire.

                    But knowing kentland, gotta ham it up for the cameras in the back.

                      I agree with the others, the company was first arriving, and the officer was letting the men on his rig know what the conditions were on arrival. Could have been 33 or any of the other companies in the US.

                        One Hallmark of a Good Officer is His/Her ability to Communicate, with the Crew, with the IC, and with Dispatch. We're now about to start getting MDTs (Computers) installed in each piece. With that, I'll expect each Unit Officer to be talking more while on the Road, relaying Pertinent info from the MDT to the Crew in the Back............

                            With rear facing jump seats it's simply easier for the officer to tell the crew in the rear what he sees as compared to have them strain to turn around and look.

                            Certainly highlights one reason to purchase forward facing jump seats.

                              Anybody ever listen to the police give a report first in?! Haha, wow (sorry bull). Didn't watch the flick, seein two "3"s side by side said enough. Not a fan of yellin period, gets everyone worked up. In my experience the guys/galls hearing a calm voice be it radio or in the truck goes a long way for keeping them collected. The screaming banshees tend to get everyone all jumpin. Not sure who said it, but they said it best. Garbage men don't turn the corner and start yelling "TRASH! TRASH!!" Lol.
