SPECIAL BIG ROOM SESSION: THE BRONX TWIN PARKS FIRE
Wednesday, September 28
Frank Leeb, FDNY Chief of Training
Using the leadership lessons learned and reinforced at the January 2022 Twin Parks Fire in the Bronx, NY this presentation will focus on strategies and tactics employed and those to consider when responding to large-scale incidents. The Twin Parks fire resulted in more than 70 victims and required the adaptation of FDNY standard strategies and tactics, which resulted in many lives saved. The speaker was the command chief for this fire and arrived on scene quickly at this escalating incident and assisted the initial incident commander. His first-hand knowledge will equip attendees with the strategic and tactical considerations necessary to stay ahead of a quickly expanding and evolving incident. Every town in America has the potential of a large-scale incident that can produce multiple victims and quickly overwhelm and outstrip responding resources. Are you prepared?
