Webcast: The Blitz Attack

Deck gun use

In today’s Webcast, presenter Richie Stack of the Chicago (IL) Fire Department discusses to properly apply the large volume of water (gallons per minute) to reduce the amount of heat/British thermal units generated in today’s modern building construction fires.

Stack reviews the importance of the first stream and water application by handlines and deck guns. He will also address the application of water from the exterior by the first-arriving engine company before making an interior attack and urban and rural fire departments’ adjusting of these tactics when personnel is limited.

Register and watch.
