Firefighter Robert Stewart and his team responded to a late night call where they were warned that residents may have still been inside the burning apartment complex. While searching inside extreme heat and zero-visibility smoke, the firefighters, including Stewart, were suddenly engulfed in flames and needed to evacuate immediately. Stewart realized his captain and a fellow firefighter were still inside the building and went back in search of them to help lead them to safety. Stewart credits his department’s training courses for teaching him the techniques that ultimately saved the lives of those firefighters that were trapped inside.
