Tactical Fire Problem – Fire in a downtown movie theatre

This week a fire in an older downtown movie theater. This might be different than the larger free standing megaplex.

1.) What would be your initial report on arrival for this incident?

2.) Do you know the occupancy limits in movie theaters in your response district?

3.) How do you weigh the potential occupancy load with what you see and read from the parking lot? (Is the lot full, half full, what does that mean?)

4.) From what you see in the scenario where is most of the fire located within the building?

5.) Based upon what you answered in number 4, describe the tactics and resources you would use.

Thanks, stay safe and stay thinking!
