TextBook Peaked Roof Operations! This video from @bakersfield.fire.department shows a great example of how peaked roof operations should be conducted! Key points: Teamwork- You should never be operating alone. While one is cutting the other firefighter is backing him up, watching their footing, and listening to radio transmissions. Sounding with a tool- checking stability of the roof through out the operation. How hard you ask? As hard as you can! You want to simulate body weight of a firefighter so hit it hard! Adequate vent hole- cutting an adequate vent hole above the fire location. Then pulling the roofing material up and pushing down the ceiling to properly vent the fire area! Get Off! - once you have done your job safely leave the roof. There is no point standing around! Check your path back to a ladder while continuing to sound where you are going! Also always make sure someone is properly holding or butting the ladder when your team comes down. Peaked roof operations are extremely hazardous! But with proper size-up and teamwork they can truly help firefighting operations. Nice work to the firefighters on the roof @bakersfield.fire.department - From members of @ffprovinggrounds
