    We tossed it out there over here, http://backstepfirefighter.com/2010/11/08/see-the-difference/. Most of the interpretation after that was that the companies shown made big mistakes, however that’s coming from anonymous, and we all know how good a firefighter he is. Could they have done better? Sure, we call can. I believe the biggest thing in the video is that they recognized the delay and didn’t advance past the “point of no return”, as Vincent Dunn calls it.

    It still, all comments aside, brings up very good points to consider when our initial attack is delayed: How are we communicating this problem? Do we need to hold up on our ventilation? Will the delay/problem require a change of assignments for the other responding companies? Do we show up ready to fall back onto plan B or C or D, quickly, when we can’t fix the problem.

    A lot to consider before the fire.
