The reality is you may only have seconds to subdue the fire. Sounding a general alarm is fine. But if you're short handed and you're going to round up people, get them in life jackets, fiddle with your VHF, etc., etc. before you even go to look at the fire, you might as well not even bother going to look at it and just bail out.

You can Google the CG APP to find out more and down load. So if you don't have a portable VHF use the cell phone app.

Need clarification or direction. The CG APP I brought up is for Android and further checking did not bring up the app for iPhone. Any help? This is a great app and I would download in a heartbeat.
