You already had a look at a methane that was done with the deliberate mistake, which you are going to have to look back at and actually answer questions on. Now, what we are going to do is to run the methane in completely and in full. What you have got to remember is when the adrenaline is pumping, when the chaos is around you and the fireworks are going off, you have gotta give that information accurately. What most incident commanders will carry with them is a methane card. It's a card where they can actually use and go down as a script, making sure that they cover every single part in full, making life easier under pressure, that's what they are there for. Justin is now going to give a methane report using that card.
