Name
The Experience of Firefighting
Description
Fires are still deadly. Nearly 70,000 people have died due to fire in the past 20 years. That's more than 3,000 a year. Seventy percent of the deaths from fire were in residential buildings, their homes. At the time of their deaths, 37 percent of fire victims in residential buildings were trying to escape; an additional 31 percent were sleeping. The presenters will bring their combined experience of more than 60 years of firefighting into the classroom with the intent to re-focus on our most important priorities, saving lives and protecting property. They will cover engine company operations; stretching the first line to save lives, truck/rescue company search and rescue tactics; fire floor-floor above, VES, and command decisions when occupants are trapped. The experience of firefighting; a training tool that still matters.
