Where firefighters come to talk training

Live Fire Evolution 2 August 2013

One of the best methods to discuss fire behavior is in real time fire fighting; with proper structure, and organization this dangerous evolution can be accomplished safely. The Fort Buchanan Fire Department hosted a 5 hours live fire evolution following the latest guides outlined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 1403). During this session personnel from the 266th Army Reserve (firefighters), Air National Guard F&ES, San Juan Municipal Fire / Medics, and Metro Emergency Response Team convened to accomplish their annual fire fighting training requirements on live fires.
This session conducted by FBFD included:
- implementation of the FBFD Live Fire Operation Guide (based on NFPA 1403)
- FBFD Live Fire Safety Checklist
- hose handling
- benefits of forced ventilation
- fire suppression
- fire behavior
- communications
- pumping operations
- Rehab
