Bus Fire - Over Aggressive Attacks On Vehicle Fires



I am by no means an un-aggressive [if that is a word] firefighter, but I have been lucky enough in my career to have enough manpower, tools, and plenty of water behind me. There was little information provided with this video, but it touches on what we all have been discussing here lately...Being Safe.

One of my articles and an all time most read article in firerescue1 is over-aggressive attacks on car fires. Unfortunately I did not have this video when I wrote the article or I would have added it.

Why be aggressive on a bus fire when you are alone, poorly equipped, low water pressure, and with no life hazard?
