A subject that was requested from a listener on Fireground operations.

R E C E O V S

Rescue , Exposures, Confinement, Extinguishment, Overhaul, Ventilation, Salvage.

Ventilation belongs somewhere between confinement and extinguishment and if you follow those steps in order you will have a more successful fireground operation.
