I know we have always been taught to search with a tool in case we need to breach a wall or become trapped and need another way out. Just curious, anyone out there conduct searches without a tool in hand?
Thanks for the input.
Amen Brother! No one, absolutely NO ONE steps of the rig (other than the nozzleman) without a tool.
Other than the man on the nozzle everyone needs to have a tool, searching with the tool can be ineffective but utilizing it as and extending tool so you can still be oriented to a wall while extending your reach towards the innermost areas of the room is acceptable. We utilize a tool during all interior operations, it’s a standard among the fire service from what I’ve been taught. Good subject though
I'm totally agree with you !

I agree with Michael Bricault, but there is also nothing wrong with the nozzleman grabbing an axe and sliding it under his/her SCBA strap upon exiting the cab.
