direct radio communication must be made with members on the roof. It must also be evident that
there is no immediate need for roof egress at the time and that this new critical task will

be informed of this temporary removal and the ladder must be returned to the same
location as quickly as possible.

above the point where the ladder comes in contact with the building

A. 4 feet
B. 5 feet
C. 6 feet

twofold: first, the ladder is more readily found by members operating on the roof at night
or under smoky conditions. The second reason is equally important. It is easier and safer
for members to get on or off the aerial and this extra extension over the roof becomes
even more critical when removing a civilian from this area.
