Great stuff, can't stress enough how this training is essential to any department that considers itself to be an aggressive interior attack department. This is not a tactic you want to use if you are employing PPV. Sad to say I have seen Departments try both and the two combine like oil and frozen water. I am running my guys through VES this weekend at the burn field...TRAIN TRAIN TRAIN...Lives depend on it.

Thanks for posting this video, it's a great tool for all to utilize. It hits on the process of performing VES.

Excellent video, the firefighter at the window could utilize a thermal image camera to assist with victim location as well as fire spread.

Great video just like we teach at breathing school. All great points to take in. Good to see agessive and cofindent moves with ground laddes and tool work.

Great video. In a recent class on truck company operations we did a lot of VES training. One version was where you had three people crew, and two entered leaving one to anchor the window. The first member in went to the door while the other searched. If conditions allowed one member to search another bedroom while the third anchors the doorway. Do you have any videos or input on this.

The reason you close it is for protection, you re-open the door to complete the ventilation process. paving the way for the enging crew . ie ...you took the window out.

Good video! The one question I have is why does the search firefighter re-open the door before exiting the room?
