Technically… it’s contained at that point.

Also, in the grand long list of incident priorities… property conservation comes dead last… incident stabilization is first… and the ground is stable.

CJS, Life safety is the first priority then incident stabilization then property conservation. Depending on the situation you may have to accomplish one to achieve the other.

I have a quick question. Why do some RFD BC’s have orange stripes and some have yellow?

The different colored reflective striping on Battalion Chief gear is simply due older versus newer. No other significance.

Hopeful, I did remember after I submitted this that Life Safety came first, and that my wording choice was poor. Thanks for the reminder. Even I can take my lick on it.
