Tactical Fire Problem – Victorian Wood Frame Fire

This week a look at an old Victorian wood frame fire.

1.) What would you estimate the age of the building is? What effect will that have on your strategy and/ or attack?

2.) Is your department’s first alarm assignment capable of handling this? How would you deploy your resources and any additional personnel needed?

3.) How many attack lines would you use, where and in what order?

4.) Based upon your vantage point of view how long a line will you need to reach the seat of the fire?

5.) List any other considerations you might have about this incident.

Stay safe, and stay thinking!
