    Let's see how we all agree or disagree on this...

    We're 100% so far, Ron. You haven't tripped us up!

      First thing would probably be to put on appropriate ppe...

      Just nitpicking!
      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.

        How do you choose appropriate PPE without first evaluating the scene?

        The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

          Performing the evaluation would warrant appropriate ppe. I would think a vest would be the minimum.

            I would hope a well equipped and well trained Rescue Company would show up to the scene in full ppe, and ready to go to work.

                I think its cute that you put "superhero" on your vests.

                Our State Police have a sticker with "Hero" on the back of their cars (no joke).

                  I saw the 360, and took it. Next time make it so the wrench monkey can't get it right.

                    The HERO on the back of there cars PROBABLY stands for Highway Emergency Response Operations.. maybe..
