Ventilation is assigned to the truck Company, We ventilate when needed [ Structure Fires] unless ventilation has already occured ,

on CO calls we do not ventilate till we see what levels are in the home , then when we find the source we control the source and then ventilate.

On gas emergency's we turn off the gas at the meter and then ventilate the building.
