Vent-Enter-Search: Down and Dirty

Monday, April 24
Learn the techniques and the thought processes necessary for successfully conducting vent-enter-isolate-search. Live fire and a series of visual and audible stressors that are part of this class will prepare you to rapidly solve problems you are likely to encounter on today's fireground, including security features on windows, large and obese victims, rapid fire spread, hoarding conditions, flow path management, victim removal and initial patient assessment, and the use of thermal imaging cameras. All of these will be incorporated into six skills stations.
