Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Does anyone have a problem with the "Direct Fire Attack" Training Minutes.  This goes against everything we have been trying to preach!  Where was the stream check.  In the building they were at (simulating a SFD) find the fire then call for water?!  My appollogies to the Brother from Bergan County. way.

Did you see the "Indirect Fire Attack" video recently added? With all due respect to the guys involved, because obviously I'm not standing in front of a camera making a video for all to see, I was a little confused. I was expecting to see a flanking position from outside the room instead of the wide and tight method shown a few steps into the room that was supposed to have flashed over. And I've never even heard of or thought of a wide and tight method. Maybe I've been living under this rock for too long.

What did you all think?
