Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Is salvage still important?


I am conducting research for the National Fire Academy’s EFO program on the current state of fireground salvage operations.  Specifically I am interested in where salvage now falls in terms of incident priorities, and whether a new consensus is developing in light of the safety culture and the many other changes sweeping our fire service.


I am looking for as many perspectives as possible, and would greatly appreciate feedback via a brief questionnaire (please feel free to forward to any of your colleagues):


Anyone interested in my findings will have the opportunity to enter contact information at the end.


Thanks, and be safe.
