Apartment Fire Behavior Video


This is a great one to show the crew and talk about some tactics. The rapidly growing fire conditions in this video are a great reminder to us all why that first water is so important. No time for complacency on this one, we need a first line that is quickly flaked and charged, we need guys that can mask up quickly and then make an aggressive push through the apartment. It also shows the importance of aggressive search crews making a quick pass through the floor above, it could be what makes or breaks someones chances in those rooms.

This seems to be one of those fires that could quickly have people worrying about everything but that first hose line, look how much fire is knocked down in a matter of a few seconds of the first line flowing.
