Fire Engineering Simulation: Deli Fire

Simulation by CommandSim and Battalion Chief Frank Montagna, FDNY

It is a cool, clear, dry day in May. There is a slight wind. This simulation lets you pick the location of the fire. It can be in the cellar, having started in the refrigeration compressor for the dairy display case in the deli. It can also be in the deli having started in the refrigeration unit in the rear of the store. Alternatively, you can start the fire in a second floor apartment.








Where do I go from here? Get a sample exercise sequence that shows you one scenario you can model with this simulation.



What am I looking for? Advice on sizing-up the structure and other important tactical considerations.


What does this thing do? Here’s a chart of possible outcomes and curveballs you can throw into the scenario, as well as navigation instructions.
