Humpday Hangout: Examining Fires in Attached Garages

In this week’s Humpday Hangout, Jason Hoevelmann and the panelists will tackle the age-old controversy about where to stretch the first attack hose line for a fire in an attached garage. Topics of discussion:

  • The fuel loads and ignition sources in attached garages
  • Diehards who insist that the first line goes through the front door of the house, regardless of fire conditions.
  • Building code requirements
  • Apparatus positioning
  • The methods and difficulties forcing overhead garage doors
