Tactical Fire Problem – “Taxpayer” with People Trapped

This week we are talking about a commercial taxpayer building (Commercial on first floor, apartments above) during a daytime fire, with people trapped. Take a look.


1.) How do you distribute the first seven people you have on scene.? A 3 person engine and a 4 person ladder.

2.) Which person is in the greatest danger?

3.) When you have a rescue with people showing at windows, what is the greater risk you might face?

4.) What length of line will you need to get to the second floor fire apartment?

5.) Based upon conditions on the first floor, where could the fire be?
