SFFD – The Best in the West

I found this video on youtube posted by SFirish06.  The title had me curious and I was looking for certain footage anyway so I watched.  This is a great video compilation featuring some neat footage.

Just a couple of points of interest before I let you watch.  At 2:10 you will see my classmate and co-worker Firefighter/Paramedic Mike Estrada fall victim to thousands of pounds of wall when trapped under a collapsing facade.  He survived and is still recovering from extensive leg injuries.  When this accident happened it was a topic of great discussion online and I was forced to remain silent since I was still anonymous.  I hope to interview Firefighter Estrada this year to get his first person account of this event.  And just another quick note, that hoseline he’s holding and moving like a garden hose is a 2 1/2″.

At 3:10 is the video I was looking for initially.  This is 1133 Mission street on the morning of December 17th, 2007.  Truck 1 has yet to stick the roof so I’m not there yet, but this is the fire I got hurt at.  Remember?

Enjoy the Best in the West, the San Francisco Fire Department:

    Great video! Really inspires me. Out of curiosity what were they using to put out the manhole fire? Looked like a salvage sheet (might have just made up my own name for a piece of equipment) almost?

      Salvage cover actually. The hose they are using is from our CO2 extinguishing unit. It is placed in the hole, the cover applied, then that ring on top.

        Thanks for answering the “noob” question. I looked it up in one of my text books too, then did a face palm after realizing I screwed up the name for salvage cover.
