San Diego RV Fire

Somehow this post got lost in the mix prior to FDIC, but it still needs to be put out there.  The video below comes from San Diego during a routine RV fire that they had on a normal day.  This video should show all of us why Full PPE is a must on vehicle fires.  These firemen were lucky that it seemed to just flash on them and they were able to retreat.  This video is probably repeated all over the US everyday, without incident because folks were ready.  RV's and large camper fires are a pain for us because of the construction and the construction materials of the vehicle.  These things burn like gasoline, yet too often you see firefighters standing around in no SCBA or PPE, this video should reaffirm the idea that PPE is a must on all fire calls.......
