Tactics & Strategies for Attic & Basement Fires

with Pine Point Fire Training

Calendar Apr 27, 2019 at 12:30 pm

HALF DAY CLASS - SATURDAY AFTERNOON

Every year firefighters get injured or killed fighting fires in basements or fires that have extended to void areas in and around the attic. This program will review the tactical considerations for fighting fires in these areas. Some of the traditional tactical measures we have used for decades may create dangerous thermal threats to our firefighters. Extensive research by UL, NIST, ATF and other metropolitan fire departments indicate the need to change tactics, control doors and ventilation. In response to over 20 years of research new protocols have been developed to educate firefighters on a much safer approach to structure fires. This program will review the construction features of Type V wood framed dwellings, the new SLICE-RS approach to house fires and an in depth look into flow path management.
