I was taught and teach, always monitor air supply. Most departments around us have heads up displays which makes its easy to so this. You start to exit BEFORE your low air alarm goes off. This is your reserve tank. Safety Officers need to become fluent in Air Managment and enforce this art on the Fireground. And for those who think its still okay to not wear SCBA on the outside perimeter, smoke is particles and the toxic by products are invisible so how do you know your not breathing it? Just because your outside does not mean it inst toxic!
