Searching Beyond The Fire
Date & Time
Thursday, October 10, 2019, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Fires are reaching flashover in a fraction of the time today as compared to years past, and the problems are only getting worse. Thermal imaging cameras cut our search time in half and give residents the best chance for survival. In this class, the instructors will examine how to incorporate Tactical Thermal Imaging concepts into search tactics and use that information to make critical tactical decisions, beginning with the area of highest threat first, protecting the search and potential victims through hoseline placement and flow path control, and monitoring your crew and the conditions of the fire and structure.
