October's Assumptions of size-up!

While scaning an old photo of Alex's, it occurred to me that we may want to start a page about assumptions of size up. After all, they say a picture is worth a thousand words! The more I look at that photo the more I realize that what I and you see in that photo can tell an incoming FF what he is looking at and what operations may have to be preformed. Our many years of collective experience would be of invaluable benefit to todays fire fighters. For instance no fire escape in the front tells me that there is one in the rear and those apartments go from front to rear. Top floor should be vertically vented asap. I see one line streached ( under the tiller) but no water in it yet. etc. Don
