Technical Support Service
From time to time students of fire fighting techniques have endeavored to pin down in tangible terms the efficiency of various fundamental tasks performed by firemen in the course of attacking and extinguishing fires. While time and manpower studies have been conducted in the past, very little recorded data is available to support the presently accepted conclusions of the service.
The November issue of FIRE ENGINEERING will contain a study of two basic engine and truck company evolutions which were recently conducted by the Wisconsin Fire Training Research Section. The results are very interesting and tend to fortify the claims made by fire chiefs and fire protection engineers in the past concerning proper manpower for fire companies.
We believe the article is a definite contribution to the ever-growing wealth of fire service technical literature and it is our pleasure to present it as a service to our readers.
