  1. To maintain egress, chase kinks, feed hose (Bow and Go), chock doors, monitor smoke conditions from the outside, operate backup lines if necessary and perform ventalation when applicable. Once hose line is in place an interior search may begin.

  2. FIRST, DIRECT voice communication with interior. If they are no responding to command. The door person can yell info. Get Out, Flow Water, entrapment, etc….

    Second, manage the movement of line, so it gets to the seat of fire. Control door opening. Manage back-up line placed at front door if needed. Additional horizontal vent on A-side when needed based on smoke & heat conditions.

    Last, after WATER on the FIRE. move in for search starting at the door.
