The first 5 min of an incident is the most critical yet that is when you hear the most unnecessary radio traffic. Thinks before you speak on the radio. Is what your going to say going to have an impact on the incident or is it something that can wait.
When things go bad on the fire ground they go bad fast. Let the crews fighting the fire have the radio courtesy they deserve.
Something to think about!!
