Attack from the Burned Side

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session

There are many tactics for attacking structure fires. For years, the fire service has been preaching to attack from the unburned side. This isn't always the best tactic. The modern fireground is evolving more than ever before, and with the use of research to enhance our procedures, this class will show different tasks and tactics that can be used to extinguish fires from all angles. 

Recent firefighter safety research and data will be discussed in detail and the students will be shown how to apply evidence-based tactics to achieve a safer, smarter, and more efficient fireground. This class goes against the grain of traditional firefighting and has a common-sense research-based approach at fighting the fires we face today.
