      Usually on the truck which may take some time to get there…always the question, do you wait for it and the person most likely dies due to smoke inhalation or do you try it without the SCBA…in this case the Chief tried it and got the woman out….great job Chief!!!

        Unnecessary risk.
         Staff that normally responds to the scene instead of the station in order to size up the situation should have a pack in their vehicle. As I said earlier, one person in peril is enough.
         Chief rolled the dice and got real lucky.

      Agreed. This could have very easily and unnecessarily  become a rescue/recovery of 2 people.
