Use this brief response and arrival video to factually prove survivability.
I’m not knocking the research done on the subject of victim survivability profiling, at least not in a arrogant, juvenile, disagreeable manner. I believe that some of the science in the research is valid, however the application appears to fall short.
So I ask you in all sincerity and as with all our posts regarding quality constructive dialogue, tell me if you can factually prove if an occupant in the fire apartment is deceased, prior to your theoretical entry.
Don’t use hyperbole; don’t use past experience; don’t use a best guess; but use true, proven fact that you know the occupant – and you do not know the race, sex and pre-existing health of said occupant – in the room with smoke venting from the window is dead, dead beyond all means of resuscitation available on the scene. Don’t use the information stated with the video; don’t use anything but what you see visually on arrival.
Seriously. I would like to learn.
