The Firefighter Training Podcast – Unanticipated Fireground Events …Murphy’s Law

This week we speak about incidents that go wrong for a variety of reasons on the fireground. These have little to do with the building on fire and more to do with operations.

Problems with drafting from water sources
Falls on the fireground due to unseen hazards
Laying hose inadvertently
Pumpers chocking on smoke and stalling
LDH hose being run over in dual wheels
Members falling ill upon arrival
Aerial frozen
Supply lines not charged and burning
Wrong direction, wrong address
Missed calls and more
