Fireground Strategies: Size-Up for Suppression and Survivability

Updated research and data done in Fire Behavior and Compartment Fire Dynamics require a fresh look at the application of strategy and tactics on the fireground. How fire companies address fire control within a structure and potential victim survivability requires a thorough knowledge of the science behind combustion and applying efficient tactical steps for suppression to be achieved. This program has been developed with the intent to answer the question of “How” this data will result in the implementation of strategic considerations and tactical solutions for fireground operations. Topics to be covered in this program include the following: Bringing fire behavior science to the scene; clues and considerations for size-up from the exterior; actionable intelligence for fireground decision-making; strategic considerations based upon construction and occupancy; making the space survivable; and fireground operational considerations for successful mitigation.
