The Engine Company’s Guide to Fires in Multiple Dwellings

Fires in apartment buildings, or multiple family dwellings, can be some of the most challenging fires any fire department can face. These buildings come in a variety of shapes and sizes and present not only a challenging advance to the seat of the fire, but an increased civilian life hazard. Some variation of an apartment building is probably in every engine company’s first-due. Faced with more complex stretches and obstacles to overcome along the way, the clock is ticking to get water to the seat of the fire. Having a plan and training on that plan is the key for successful engine company operations at these types of fires.
