Hi everyone, I am sorry for my intrusion in your group since I am not an Aussie:-)
Though I have met two Aussies in my life which almost qualifies me:-)
My name is Lars and I work within the fire service in Sweden.
I have a website where I try to collect training materials (powerpoints etc) from all over.
I am focusing right on ventilation/ppv/tactical ventilation or what you may call it.
I would really like to have a material from Australia about this, it will be translated to some other languages so that other firefighters can take part of it.
The general idea is to have database of material to take ideas and knowledge from for fire instructors etc. It would be a great tool to see how you operate in Australia which I know to little about in general:-(
So if anyone would like to help me it would be super!
I don't think I've seen any powerpoint on ventilation! Mind you, with a house fire it's pretty well doors and windows only until the fire has been knocked down, not all doors/windows are opened either, we try for across the house to have an air path. After knockdown, we'll have people up opening a roof, but that is initially to search for any extension - smoke removal is a secondary consideration.
