Firefighting Today Weekly Roundtable – Does the FD Safety Culture Affect Service Delivery?

Join us on Sunday November 5, 2017 at 8:00 PM Eastern time when the Panel will discuss whether the safety culture and initiatives affect service delivery. Is safety just an excuse not to do our jobs? Is there any data to back up either side of this argument.

Tactical Fire Problem – Bomb Squad Standby

This week the Tactical Fire Problem is an explosion after a standby assisting the police and bomb squad.

 

During a standby you and the on scene crews hear a large explosion and this is the scene.

Have a discussion about all of the potential issues facing you now. Have you trained with the PD and bomb squad? Do you even know how to remove a Bomb suit? Is there decontamination that needs to be done? When you do these LE standbys are you set up for DECON.

Lots to talk about in this week’s scenario.
