From my blog at Firehouse Zen:
Firehouse.com has an article on the NIST study being conducted in Maryland and Virginia regarding fire company staffing and I am excited to see what the eventual findings are. Why am I “excited”? It seems like a pretty interesting feeling to have about a study that deals with something we already know to be true. I mean, isn’t having four people on an engine always better than three?
What do you think? Shouldn't we rely a little bit more on scientific analysis than on anecdotal evidence?
