Tactical Fire Problem – Pier Fire

This week we move away from our standard structural and suburban incidents and move toward the shore line a bit. Take a look.

1.) Have you pre-planned your piers? I once operated on a pier fire that reached over 600 feet out into the water. Length of the stretch and pumper access? How close can you get?

2.) What is the construction like and what will it take to extinguish creosote soaked timbers?

3.) How are you going to deal with the “under” pier fire?

4.) What marine resources do you have to assist you, and can they get access to the underside?

Can you use foam or another agent and what are the potential risks if any in using it?
