Intelligent fire operations be aggressive but dont be stupid

This thought provoking workshop will examine how changes in building construction and design, increased fire loads, recent research on fire dynamics and reduced fire company staffing may call for a change in some traditional firefighting tactics.

Participants will learn:

This class will examine modern fire dynamics; why wind-driven fires are not   just a high rise fire hazard and why ventilation without water application may make interior conditions worse. Students will learn why experienced, professional firefighters, whether career or volunteer, do not operate at every fire, every phase of a firefighting operation and every occupancy with the same strategy, tactics or level of risk.  . Several fire case histories will be examined to identify and avoid the most common “mayday” situations.  Students will also learn factors that must be considered in an on-going   size up that continually evaluates the risk to firefighters against the intended benefits,

This is an intermediate level workshop, intended for command officers, company officers and firefighters aspiring to be company officers.
