Gaining access to a structure during an emergency response creates concerns for safety of personnel as well as liability for resulting property damage or injury. While many of these operations are conducted in a safe and efficient manner, standardizing your policy and procedures can help to assure this operation remains safe for your personnel and protects your Emergency Service Organization (ESO) from associated liabilities.
