Tactical Tips for Garden Apartment Fires

When running a fire in a garden apartment fire, anticipate the following: 
1.Your pre-connected attack line may come up short have a plan to extend it    
2. Fires in kitchens and or bathrooms may extend via common pipe chases. Get to the floor above and check for extension early 
3. If extension is found on the floor above you need to check the attic/cockloft ASAP 
4. On all working fires in garden apartments it is imperative you floor below is checked for drop down fire. 

 5. When possible save the front for the ladder truck/tower. Hose stretches ladders do not.
