Tactical Fire Problem – Hospital Operating Room

This week the Tactical Fire Problem goes back to a hospital Operating room. What does a serious incident in these special occupancies mean to you?

1.) How would you respond to this upon arrival as the first due company at the hospital?

2.) What other critical systems could have been affected by this incident?

3.) What are your contingency plans on where you can move additional patients? Do you have enough “areas of refuge” or enough space?

4.) What other systems could affect fire spread?

5.) Are you familiar with all critical shut off valves in these facilities?

If You do not have a hospital, do you have any surgical centers off site and located in strip malls, or any surgical centers adjacent to dentists offices. Don’t think it can’t happen in your area!
