    Title: Use of Respirators - Procedures for Interior Structural Firefighting
    Type: Text Slide

    In addition to the procedures for respirator use in IDLH atmospheres, in interior structural fires:

    • At least two employees must enter and remain in visual or voice contact with one another at all times
    • At least two employees must be located outside
    • All employees engaged in interior structural firefighting must use SCBAs
    • One employee located outside may be assigned an additional role (e.g., incident commander), so long as this doesn’t interfere with their assistance or rescue activities
    • This standard does not preclude firefighters from performing emergency rescue before an entire team has assembled
