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!

This way they can respond to any potential liability they might face when an officer dies or is injured at a fire scene with a blanket, "he/she was in violation of policy and therefore we can't......."

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.
