  • Roof Collapses on FF's-Caught on Tape

    Phoenix FD at a motel fire. Roof collapses on two firefighters.

    Video

    You have to scroll down to the end of the list of the videos. A brief commercial plays before the video.

    Good example of why you should always wear full PPE at a fire.

    Holy balls! I'm glad they got out of that, they were lucky.

    Anyone know if they got hurt? I hope not anyway. Close call.

        I did too. You have to look to the right of that video and there is a list. Click the serch tab and type in Phoenix and it will come up..........

          I searched for Pheonix, found the listing and a picture. Clicked it and it came up an ad for Pippin...

          If someone can find a better way for me to do this, I'd be interested.

            I'm looking for a better video link. Here is a link to KPHO News in Phoenix. No video, but they have a series of pictures of the collapse.

                  I'm glad it was only a close call.
                  Know what is over your head! We have all been complacent or had a bit of tunnel vision. Facade collapse can kill, we need to keep our situational awareness and know what is going on overhead. Watch Dunn's collapse videos to re establish a need for training.
                  And be safe

                        Now I realize there is a lot of things missing in that video to make any judgements but did anyone see any warning signs of collapse? Since it is a bad angle and such I'm not sure if that has any influence but as far as I can tell it just came down right on top of them. Didn't seem to have a moments notice before it came down.

                          I can't believe Brunacini allowed them to inside of a building that's on fire!!

                          I didn't think they were allowed to do that in Phoenix anymore.... (little sarcasm there..)

                            careful mentioning the "B" name on these forums...
                            "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?
