Tactical Fire Problem – Residential

This week a residential fire. The house could be typical of a Southeastern US home.

1.) What size and where does the first line go?

2.) What is the ventilation status right now?

3.) What is the room in the large window on the left of the door?

4.) What is the most likely room in the window on the right side?

5.) Do you locate the pumper in the street or do you put the pumper in the driveway? What is your department’s SOP? Is there ever a time to use the driveway?
