The Initial Attack Line
Date & Time
Friday, October 11, 2019, 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
The initial attack line has a greater impact on the outcome of a fire than any other fireground operation, so it is imperative to get it right. This course looks at initial attack line tactical decision-making for single-family and multi-family dwellings, commercial and industrial buildings, and standpipe-equipped buildings. Other topics to be discussed include, target flow rate, hoseline and nozzle selection, estimating the hose stretch, and stretching, advancing, and operating the initial attack line.
