Tactical Fire Problem – Large industrial Building

This week we are looking at a large industrial building. If you do not have an industrial or manufacturing building, think about the largest building in your response district.

1.) As you look at this building with the volume of smoke, ask yourself how much space (or area) of the building is full of smoke? The building is the container.

2.) What does the fact that the smoke is hanging, and appears to be low indicate?

3.) What is your standard attack line plan? How do you create a long stretch with an adequate rate of flow?

4.) How does this fire and building size affect your firefighters air supply capability?

5.) What is your first initial C A N (conditions, actions, needs) report?
