Air Management and Crew Accountability

Fire Engineering – A recent report on a North Carolina firefighter line-of-duty death has drawn attention to out-of-air emergencies. 

This week, Mike Gagliano of Seattle (WA) Fire Department joins Bill Gustin, Mike Dugan, and the rest of the crew as they discuss the measures their departments have taken to maintain accountability and keep personnel from running out of air in large commercial buildings and related environments like sub-basements, subways, etc. 

The members will also relate their most memorable “out of air” experience.
