  • A blogger break is often needed to reset. Take your time, we’ll cover your runs.
    As far as comments on content…keep it coming, but the grey and black stripes are a bit distracting. Perhaps darken them a bit?

    We’ll be here when you get back.

    I kind of like the stripes…kind of draws you in. As far as taking a break, it’s just something we all need every now and then.

    I think you guys post quality content, and especially liked the Tactics Tuesday stuff, just cause it’s a quick way to keep on your toes, and easy to grab the crew for a few minutes and get everybody’s take. Most of all, I like the different viewpionts from your crew. All post good pieces, and are open to discussion about them.

    Looking forward to your next offering(s)!

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
Ben, Thanks a lot for your comment! You're definitely right that there needs to be hoseline protection given to the guys working above the fire; and that a TIC should be utilized when attempting VES techniques. Every little thing we can do and engineer to make an already dangerous maneuver safer is a must! Thanks…

While VSP was written as an EFO paper, the paper it is not end all be all on this topic. In a presentation Marsars did last year, he himself said it wasn't 100%. Even gave an example of a fire in his home local where a person lived, that would of met unlikely survivability profiling.…

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
I agree, with two additional points. VIES of the tenable 2nd story windows should include the following - 1. A heavy Transitional attack in the 1st floor windows below the fire to protect the truckies' access, the ladders, and egress for truckies and (potential) victims. 2. Truckies take a thermal imaging camera and size up…
