First Due Friday; Heavy Fire, Standpipe Ops & Mayday! (Video)

Posted on April 13, 2012 at 10:33am 0 Comments

This video is a great training tool for size-up, radio comms & Command presence.  This FD sounds very professional despite difficult fire conditions.  This week we've got heavy fire & smoke on an upper floor w/ standpipe ops in progress and a Mayday called while transitioning to Defensive Ops.   Compare this FD's ops to your FD and  give us your RECEO VS considerations.  Enjoy!…


First Due Friday; Water, Water, Who's Got the Water?

Posted on March 9, 2012 at 8:30am 0 Comments

Large residential w/ HEAVY FIRE!  We'll call this one a rural firefighting operation.  Could your FD handle a water shuttle operation for this?  What resources would you use for it?  What may be some other issues to consider?  What does the RECEO VS profile look like for this one? Enjoy!


Thanks and Be Safe!

THE SCENARIO:  HEAVY FIRE from the attic w/ extension to TWO other houses!  If this one doesn't test the strength and discipline of your crews and alarm assignments, congratulations!   Give us the report and your RECEO VS considerations.  Enjoy!
