Firefighter Training Podcast – Episode 30 – Firefighters Memorial and IAFC Rules of Engagement.

The first Sunday in October is designated as the Fallen Firefighters Memorial Sunday. In this episode we read the honor roll of the 81 Lives lost in 2012 with a small tribute.
The second portion of the episode is a review of the Structural Firefighting Rules of Engagement for firefighters and incident commanders. I felt it was important that in order to properly honor those who have given their lives, that we should review some positive safety actions to insure they have not died in vain.
I have left links to the honor roll and the rules of engagement below.
