-The big boys of DCFD taking care of business in a real cool professional manner. Ventilation in place (as pointed out by the white helmet), nobody getting to excited... nice. Real cool pros in action!!

-Access to upper floors made, ventilation prior to interior handlines being committed, ongoing ventilation and aggressive searching ahead of the handline. Nice example of Truck Work getting done.

-Nice nozzle discipline on the part of the kid outside!!! Too many would be tempted to start spraying water on visible fire or try to go pushing inside following the first line. But that didn't happen here. This is obviously the result of good training.
