The built environments on the East and West Coasts dictate the chosen tactics on the fireground. The presenters will discuss how modern fire dynamics also play a role in the tactics chosen daily by the FDNY and Los Angeles County Fire Department. They will also discuss how important it is to understand the modern fireground and how it effects your built environment.
