A discussion with the first-in Engine Company captain
Through the eyes of the first-in incident commander. Upon arrival, this fire had its challenges and what a better way to learn, if not through your own eyes, then through the eyes of another. Helmet cam footage and an interview with the first-in Engine Company captain display the importance of a well-coordinated attack and thinking several steps ahead. Note, he doesn’t stay in the cab and he keeps track of all his units in his head. No easy feat!
