This week the problem is a tire and auto parts store. Take a look.
1.) What size line is needed for this fire?
2.) What is the type of building construction here and what does that do to your tactical considerations?
3.) A brand new building would be sprinklered. This is an old existing building in a suburban community and it is not sprinklered. What does the lack of sprinklers mean in a building that could have steel bar joist roof construction?
4.) Have you ever considered, practiced or used foam hand lines on an interior attack?
5.) What does the high BTU fire load mean to your departments operation? Lots of water flow, requires lots of personnel. Heavy hydrocarbon fire load means lots of SCBA work in large spaces among cluttered stock. Are you ready?
