The Intelligently Aggressive Search

Monday, April 24
This class will combine time- and battle-tested search techniques with updated modern thermal imaging technologies, designed to take your fireground searches to the next level. Thermal imaging, when used properly and not completely relied on, can enhance fundamentally sound, aggressive search crews, making us more efficient and more successful. Learn where to position the TIC operator and how to communicate and direct searching members who don't have the device in there hands. A good fundamental search relies on sound basics, from moving through the room quickly and efficiently to understanding fire and smoke behavior in a compartment. When combined with modern thermal imaging, we change the game and save lives. This class is about understanding all the tools at your disposal, when to use them, and how to use them.'
