Survivability from Streams: The Facts and Fiction of Extinguishment

Thursday, April 27
Our incident priorities start with life; thus, getting water where it needs to go in a timely manner can allow you to be more aggressive in your search procedures. We can increase survivable space on the inside for everyone by getting water where it needs to go quickly. Using today's research and combining it with our experiences, we can improve our actions on the fireground tremendously. This interactive class will discuss the facts and fiction when it comes to hose streams and the use from the interior or exterior positions. Let's find a way to get inside as quickly as possible to search and isolate rooms to preserve what we can for the homeowners. Let's put our knowledge and experience together and take back the fireground!
