    Old school is wrong because its old?

    Like I said, I've yet to have or even hear of a problem.

    Managing properly is the key phrase in your post. I'd prefer to leave the glass in the door then to use duct tape, break the window and capture some of the glass.

    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

      Old school of thought. ie. We have done it one way for so long so why consider safer ways/ better ways?

        Prove its better and safer and I'll consider it.

        My experience is that its time consuming, unneccesary and messy.

        You don't know me, but if you did, you would know that I'm not opposed to progress, just not for "progress" sake.

          On my dept we try to waste no time, we cover patient and responder inside and pop them all but front and rear. Boom done takes about ten seconds and never had a problem with glass other than it not being broke yet. When our responder first gets in they check rolling window down, trys once and if no go then windows go. But this is in Minnesota and we do things funny up here

            I'm with you. I have never been cut or seen anyone cut by broken tempered glass. We do remove all glass, but only the windshield bears any attention beyond just bustin' it. If the patient is covered, it's not a problem.
