Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

First Due Friday; Truck Arrives First at a House Fire

Share your strategies, tactics and experience!  Every Friday we'll post a picture or video and want to get your take on the situation.

THE SCENARIO:  You are the Officer on the 4 person TRUCK company who ARRIVES FIRST at this single-family house fire.  Due to other call volume, the FIRST DUE ENGINE is 5 minutes away.

  • Where is the fire?
  • Where is it going?
  • As a TRUCK, what tactics can you perform ahead of, without, an Engine for 5 minutes?
  • What tactics are a priority?
  • What are your assignments to YOUR crew?
