1st Due Search 4 Them

We will use Tempo, experience, data (from actual documented rescues), fire behavior and building construction knowledge to prepare ourselves and position ourselves to put THEM first.

We will perform a flanked approach covering 1st due Engine search and responsibilities and 1st due Truck search and responsibilities with an inside team and outside team focus on split / oriented search & VES that will have us occupying the interior places where the highest percentage of victims are foundwithin the first 4 minutes of arrival to put THEM first.
