    I agree that the collapse situation brings in a unique dimension to the PASS equation. We have integrated PASS on every pack that we have in the department. The HAZMAT team has their own dedicated packs that do not have PASS alarms and these are the packs that would most likely be used in a collapse/trench situation. It kind of avoids us having to deal with your question haha. But I do agree if accountability is working well then there is no real need for PASS if people are above ground at a collapse but I would prefer there to be some backup in place for those going down into the hot zone. (in this case the collapse area)

    Exactly. I think some sort of accountability tag in/tag out system is sufficient for this type of operation.

    PASS devices for nonfire responses

    Many FD's have SCBA with integrated PASS into it. those are nice and will help cut down on LODDs. Now lets say you go to a collapse or other tech rescue call. do yo want to wear a SCBA if the atmosphere is good. If you don't wear your SCBA will you stil have a PASS on you. Do any FD's have SOG or SOP on using a PASS of the fireground? Does anyone have any ideas on this? does anybody keep a PASS in your gear or a bag with you?
