Firefighter Training Podcast – Firefighter Needs Help! – An Interview with Mark Lamplugh

This episode of the Firefighter Training Podcast deals with a very serious topic about members who may be in some emotional distress because of the job, or factors in their life outside of the job. None of us would hesitate to help a brother or sister who called MAYDAY on the fireground, but what do we do with the thousands of silent MAYDAYS that are just as life threatening, but not being called.

Tactical Fire Problem – Storage Building

This week we are looking at a structure fire in a storage building/

 

1.) As you look at the building with no markings, what other information can you find in this response that might give clues to contents?

2.) Looking down the “D” side estimate the length of the building.

3.) How advanced is the fire based upon smoke conditions?

4.) The smoke condition appears to be emanating from a horizontal joint near the roof line. What can this tell you about possible construction, if anything?

5.) What is the attack plan? How many lines, what size, and where and how?

A Fire Behavior Discussion

This is a short video discussion about the current national debate concerning fire behavior research. This has been a polarizing debate in some cases and it is the intent of this video is to look at both sides of the equation and realize that there are multiple solutions, depending upon your department resources, and what fire you pull up to. This discussion also focuses on firefighter safety.
