Drill of the Week: Overhaul Safety

By Forest Reeder

It’s easy for a company of firefighters who have successfully knocked down a fire to become complacent about the hazards that exist inside a fire building. The sense of danger and awareness is lessened and it is easy to overlook potentially serious hazards.

Be aware of structural stability of a fire damaged room or building. Air monitoring should take place before removal of SCBA and proper use of eye, face, hand and body protection using your PPE should continue. Discuss overhaul plans using the photos in this week’s drill and review your SOGs on overhaul.
