Friday, April 19
Classroom Session
Strategy & Tactics

Tall buildings pose unique firefighting challenges that require practiced operational decision making and tactics to overcome a host of potential problems. This presentation will discuss and review tactical response options to address challenges and catastrophic failures in operational deployment. Topics include coming up short and adding a length, taking nozzle reaction to ground, flowing with door control, the punch, steps for making entry, and testing glass. View a short video on “Exterior Control” options using portable monitors, bent pipe, distributor and opposing tip nozzles for fire, autoexposure, cladding, and void space control along with water supply solutions.
