Thanks Steve,
I agree that if you MUST go up, do what needs to be done and then get down! The view is wonderful but not worth the risk.

March Roundtable - Firefighter on the Tip of the Aerial-I feel for the initial positioning and direction of your stream it may be necessary to temporarily place someone at the tip. However, this should be done with great caution. The concern is opposing master streams and the possibility of overdirecting a stream, striking another firefighter. The operation should be coordinated with units performing the task and channeled through an operations or command officer. Otherwise, keep firefighters off of the tip-Thanks.
