Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Engine House Training, LLC

Take a look at the video and let’s have a discussion. It is not a critique of what the video shows, but more of what are our considerations if we pull up to this fire. We all have buildings like this one and depending upon our resources and response area, how would we deploy on this fire? Watch the video and ask and discuss these questions with your crew:

–What type building construction can be suspected?
–As the first arriving company, where and what do we do first?
–What is our primary concern in regards to access?
–What are our life safety considerations and where should we be looking?
–Are exposures a problem?
–What size line are deploying and why?
–Types of ventilation and roof considerations?

These are just few things to talk about. Train hard and share your thoughts.
