I have entered several burning structures throughout my career, and will continue to do so until I retire, if a life is at stake. This is just typical government risk management, so they can wash their hands in the event of an injury to a police officer. It's that old "we didn't tell you to do that" card they play. I took an oathe to protect and serve, and with that comes a risk to my own safety. God bless, and stay safe out there!

TOTALLY CHICKEN SHIT!!!!!!!! TYPICAL RISK MANAGEMENT AND POLICY MAKERS PUTTING MONEY OVER LIVES. I HOPE THEIR UNION WILL FIGHT THIS, NEXT THEY WILL SAY THE SAME APPLIES TO BURNING VEHICLES.
