Subject: RE: BS: positive suggestions for disaster planning
The 'where to meet' thing is crucial. Had an occasion a few years back where we arrived at a house that was engulfed. The scene commander asked the mom if everyone was out. She didn't know. Two guys did entry and two were at the door with an exposure line (charged hose) ready to spray or do rapid intervention in case things went bad, fast. Turns out there was no one in the house, and it put two men at risk needlessly. As Clinton Hammond is so fond of saying, "Running isn't a plan. Running is what you do when a plan fails."
