Tactical Fire Problem – Rural Barn Fire

This week we look at a rural water supply operation with a large barn fire. (Barn B A R N, not B O N!)


1.) Assume for this scenario that the nearest water supply is at a minimum 3/4 of a mile away.  What is your plan?

2.) What size line (s) and what flow will you use.

3.) Do you open the main sliding doors to the main barn? If so when?

4.) What could the two chutes on the front of the building indicate to you? What kind of danger would this represent to you?

5.) Based upon volume, what rate of flow would you have to sustain for 100% involvement?
