This is a question they use a lot in my department during new hire interviews. They are only allowed to answer one or the other and then explain why. When I ask people it is almost split down the middle as to what there decision is. Okay, you can only answer one or the other as well and then explain your reasoning for choosing that answer. And remember. "every situation is a situation."
You and your partner are assigned search to locate a child in an upstairs bedroom. You locate the victim and as you are making your way out your partner goes down... you are only able to save one of them on your own. Who do you choose? the child? or your partner?
I know it might seem like a silly question, but ask your self if you were the firefighter that went down who would you want your partner to rescue?
