Thursday, October 10, 2019, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
This class will look at the lessons learned from an investigation of a fire at a 6-story senior apartment building in Aurora, CO, where crews encountered multiple problems. Broken standpipe, radio issues, firefighter mayday, and civilian rescues made for a challenging situation for the incident commander and fire crews alike. The presenters will comb through the details from the post-incident analysis and leave attendees with a clear understanding of the challenges that were faced, and important lessons learned from the event.
