Ask a Firefighter a question...like the "Ask a Police Officer" thread.
DavidMidgley said:Why do firemen climb ontop of a burning building and cut a hole into the roof? I know it's to vent the building, but I thought that you wanted to starve the fires access to oxygen. So how does this help?
I did forget that part...WeeMan97 said:right here colin been at the firehouse the last 3 days. to add on to FDwheelman we cut holes in the roof to also provide better visibility when the smoke and heat go thru the hole we see better!! ya there are many types of ventilation, vertical, horizontal, hydualic(sp?) so on and so forth.
Not quite an authority...DavidMidgley said:Yes, that most certainly described what I thought/guessed at. But, it's better to get the unvarnished truth from an authority. thank you!:smile:
