Tactical Fire Problem – Trailer Fire with someone trapped……or not

This week we are once again making you think and use your experience to help make decisions.


1.) Trailer fires burn quick. Based upon what you are seeing here, what stage is this fire? Is it survivable for victims and can you make a grab in time?

2.) Is this an occupant or a neighbor? Why did you come to that conclusion and what difference does it make to you and your information gathering?

3.) How do you divide your initial first 4 personnel on scene? Who does what?

4.) After life safety has been taken care of what other issues should you be considering?

5.) What impact does the construction of a trailer have on your “window of opportunity” for action?
