Tactical Fire Problem – Restaurant – Searching a place of assembly

This week the tactical problem puts a couple of members in a hazardous environment inside a place of assembly.


1.) How much time have you trained searching a complex environment with tables, chairs, tablecloths and other non symmetrical layouts?

2.) What is the likely square footage of this area? How long does it take two members to search an area like this on a standard air supply?

3.) What impact does the fuel and decorative materials have on expected operating time before a hostile fire event?

4.) Have you practiced stretching hose lines in this potentially entangling situation?

5.) Have you preplanned (tactically) these restaurants, barrooms, and banquet halls? (Use a rope to simulate hose line if you need to)
