    Glad to hear Tulsa, OK FF is alive and recovering. (How is recovery going?)Brings home just how much danger Firefighters go to every time they enter into a burning a building – And to have fires deliberately set my opinion on that = not nice at all….. Curious what PAR means?.

    PAR stands for Personnel Accountability Report. It’s basically a roll call of all personnel on scene.
