Tactical Fire Problem – Apartment Complex

This week a fire in a garden style apartment complex.

1.) Create a brief initial radio report using the conditions, actions, needs (CAN) format.

2.) The landscape in some of these buildings may not allow apparatus placement as close as you want. What is the length of the stretch for this scenario?

3.) How does your first alarm assignment compare with the apparatus and manpower that will be required to handle this.

4.) Have you preplanned these facilities in your response area? Is there detection? Is there suppression? (Sprinklers) Are there stand pipes available?

5.) What methods will you use to account for all residents that live in the entire building, not just that apartment.

Thanks and stay thinking, and stay safe!
