New Jersey House Fire Illustrates Manpower Needed at a Working Structure Fire - 1/30/16

This video just posted by 'ole-buddy' Dave Statter at Statter 9-1-1 shows with clarity the need for personnel at working fires.


Note that three firefighters are required to operate a "large stream-" or a 2-1/2-inch hose line.


Even more firefighters are needed to re-position or move a charged large stream.


Also note on the video- firefighters save a cage of cockatiels- as well as what appears to be a bed-ridden male from one of the houses next to the burning structure.


This video shows why the need of so many firefighters is important when a structure fire breaks out
