Apparatus Placement at MVA’s

When we respond to an MVA, there are many factors to figure out as far as vehicle placement goes. Placement of the apparatus can either hinder you or help you. What I would like everyone to do, is write a little comment on how your department has the tools set up and what you do on scene. Are your tool’s mounted or do you have a portable system? Are they mounted in the rear, front or side? Do you pull past or stop short? This is just to see how other departments do things. Everyone does things a little differently and sometimes you can get good ideas from other people. It may not change the way you do things but you can find out that someone else may have the same set up but deploys it a little differently.
