This no-nonsense approach to engine company operations examines the first-due strategy and tactics of the engine company. The presenters will discuss the framework to maximize the effective and efficient methods of first-due fire attack and the three most common used tools—1¾-inch hoseline, 2½-inch hoseline, and the deck gun. This class will cover fire attack in both residential and commercial buildings, as well as fires in high-rises and look at alternative methods to overcome stretching short, and more importantly the steps to take to keep that from happening. This is a comprehensive, yet simple, approach to engine company operations.
