Blitz Attack as an Offensive Attack Utilizing Tank Water

Wednesday, April 26
Blitz attack is a quick-water tactic used by first-arriving fire suppression and rescue companies to safely and efficiently mitigate fires that pose a critical life hazard or have a high potential for fire extension, both interior and exterior. Learn when to use and not use a blitz attack, how long you should flow water in relation to tip size of the fire stream as it relates to tank size, and the benefits of using a ball valve or gate valve and stream shapers with a blitz attack.
