Ensuring Operational Success at Attached Garage Fire Incidents

Annually, attached garage fires are one of the most common areas of origin for occupied residential structure fires. Attached garages can vary greatly in their layout and design based upon single- or multiple-family occupancies. Our tactics at these incidents should mimic these stark contrasts to ensure efficient and effective fireground operations and ensure the safety of both occupants and responders. This course will outline the vast difference in layouts seen in both new and legacy construction for single- and multiple-family occupancies. We will further review applicable building codes and how we as responders can utilize them to our tactical advantage. Lastly, best practices for strategy and tactics will be reviewed utilizing several recent incidents that had varying outcomes.
