This should never have happened. Kearney Fire & Rescue ?
This video was passed on to me by a Fire Department Captain who was very upset to see this ridiculous mistake on the part of the second crewman who decided to ascend the ladder instead of staying below and anchoring it.
All the training and certifications in the world can not equal the value of a little common sense. It is clear that the ladder was on a slippery surface, and one of the first rules of training when deploying a ladder is to have one crewman solidly planted at the base to prevent it from moving.
