The Fire occurs at 0630 Hours on a Sunday morning. The building is wood platform construction with a truss roof assembly. The exterior load bearing walls are wood frame. The floors are constructed of a joist system with 2x10 joists supporting the floors. The exterior has a brick veneer. All interior wall assemblies are drywall (sheetrock) on wood studs. There is no built-in fire protection system. Individual units have battery operated smoke detectors.
This is a one section garden type apartment. That means that there are no other “units” attached to this building. Generally, each section has 8 to 12 individual apartments depending upon the number of floors (Divisions). In this case, there are 12 apartments – four on each floor. Each floor has a center hallway with two apartments on each side of the hallway and in this case, there are three floors again for a total of 12 apartments. (See the floor plan below. )
Here are your questions to consider:
What type of search would you expect to conduct?
Where would you expect to start your search (Division 1, 2 or 3)
What apartment would you start in (A, B, C, or D)
Briefly describe how you would conduct the search.
I may add some more questions in the next Blog.
