The attack team will pull the hose line instructed by the Officer
Additional firefighters will do as instructed by the officer
The driver/operator will charge the hose line when directed and continue to monitor the pump operations
The attack team will approach the vehicle slowly from the side extinguishing the fire as they approach
Caution should be taken as the team approached exploding bumpers, fuel tanks, tires, etc.
When the fire is under control the engine compartment and trunk of the vehicle on fire will be opened and cooled
The vehicles battery cables should be disconnected or cut when possible
The IC should give early consideration to requesting additional engines and tankers during commercial vehicle and electric vehicle fires. These incidents routinely require a large amount of water to extinguish. Although standpipes and associated fire department connections can be found on some bridges and overpasses and should be noted on pre-incident plans, personnel should incorporate these systems in primary water supply plans as they are not required by code to be near fire hydrants.
