Tools of the Trade Tuesday: Communication. Communicating on and off the fire-ground is a big part of what we do. Even a quick conversation before leaving for an alarm as shown in the video above can make the difference. Above Lt. Frusciante and FF Bellantoni are having a quick conversation about vehicle positioning before responding. This quick conversation determined Ladder 2 positioning and the hydrant location for Engine 5.
Some of these conversations include building hazards, patient information, road conditions, traffic hazards and much more. This not only informs members of potential hazards but also helps them operate more efficiently. 🚒👨🚒
