This was Filed under “flashover” on youtube. It’s a bit long but note the fire venting @ the 3:14 mark, then a little later when a crew decides to enter the structure(after fire vented thru the roof no less) @ the 5:28 mark. This is an old video from around 1993 from somewhere in America. As you watch the video what are you thinking?

 Smoke conditions? Engine Placement? Water? ect?…What do you see?

Thankfully people post videos of their operation for us all to see & learn…

ALSO, FOLLOW THIS LINK TO AN ANOTHER AMAZING FLASHOVER VIDEO SENT TO MAF FROM CAPT STONE OF FWBFD!

Filed under: Consolidation

I would like to start the discussion by asking; what, in your opinion, would be the positives of consolidation of the Fort Walton Beach area FD’s meaning- FWBFD, OCWFD, OIFD, MEFD to start. We want to begin on the right foot here so keep it positive, the goal is to open up the idea of allowing the IAFF to come in to have a study only (all for free!) done at this point, on consolidation. Fire away!(no pun)
