Baltimore Fire Department issues new rules on firefighters entering blazing buildings

November 2, 2023

The Baltimore Fire Department is making adjustments to how it fights fires. The new procedures were sent out in a memo to staff on Tuesday, WJZ-TV reported. It says effective immediately firefighters must fight fires from outside the building unless they’re told to do otherwise by a battalion chief. Firefighters will now only attack fires from the inside of occupied dwellings after they have completed several checks of the building.
