In this episode of Jumpseat Radio host Ryan Pennington shares 3 cues and clues that a home is full of heavy content.  Heavy Content is a politically correct term used for first responders to identify and communicate findings of Hoarding in a respectful way. Using Heavy Content will describe the condition of the building and NOT the occupant.

Using the 3 cues and clues will allow first responders to suspect that the building is full. These common findings are seen throughout responses. While each one alone is NOT a 100% sure fire way of the presence of heavy content, combining one or more will.  Finding one or more should indicate a further assessment is necessary.


In this podcast these 3 cues will be covered.


  • Finding Blue Tarps
  • Cars Full of Stuff
  • Overgrown Vegetation
