Date & Time
Thursday, July 23, 2020, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
At every fire, no matter the building construction or the occupancy type, there is one thing that must be done—stretching a hoseline. In this course, the presenter will take a no-nonsense approach to engine company operations, discussing the framework to maximize the effective and efficient methods of first-due fire attack and the three most commonly used tools; 1¾-inch and 2½-inch hoselines, and the deck gun. This class will cover both residential and commercial buildings, as well as high-rises and look at alternative methods to overcome stretching short and, more importantly, the steps to take to keep that from happening.
