Hey FireIce Blog Readers! FireIce Academy is back in session…
You are the officer of an engine company and are enroute to a multiple vehicle accident with entrapment. Your crew consists of a driver, and two firefighters both are paramedics. Additional resources enroute are 2 Advanced Life Support Ambulances each with a crew of three and Special Operations with a crew of three all units have an ETA of 3 minutes.
While responding you observe heavy black smoke rising from the accident scene and what appears to be several explosions. As you arrive you discover 6 vehicles involved in fire including a tractor trailer of what is pictured.
Please size up the scene and describe your plan of action? Stay Safe!
