Tailboard Takeaways Take 4

Wednesday, April 17
Classroom Session

Tailboard Takeaways is the fourth series of aggressive fires fought by the San Francisco Fire Department presented at FDIC. It is packed with videos, photographs, and tactical channel audio of actual working fires that the San Francisco Fire Department has responded to in the past year. Learn what went well on the fireground and what left a little bit to be desired. This is a play by play of actual tailboard briefings held immediately after every working fire and covers the gamut of firefighting from access to extinguishment to ventilation--everything from running the play to apparatus positioning, roof operations, interior offensive aggressive attack, defensive operations, flow path, hoseline selection, and ladder placement in all five building types covered. Building construction will be discussed and how fire behavior affects the way we do business as an old school fire department meeting the challenges of today's fire environment.
