Squad 13 / Hazmat 13 began air monitoring and water run off sampling to ensure no chemicals or additional toxins were present in the building. This was confirmed that no additional hazardous materials were present and the Squad Company was released at 0800 hours. Squrt 51 remained on location, to continue master stream operations on the Division A Side of the building. The Squrt was relocated several times due to the building collapsing and concerns for additional collapses of the walls and roof. Shift change was made on scene with the members of B Platoon relieving A Platoon from the fire ground. Squrt 51 continued to operate until 1430 hours. The squrt was utilized extensively on the Division A side because of its ability to articulate and apply water up under the piles of debris via lower windows and openings.
