Class Details

This course will cover strategy and tactics in attics and cocklofts. Not all top floor fires are the same, there are several different types of attics and lofts and different methods of fire attack and ventilation. From cocklofts in taxpayers and residential storage attics to urban living space attics in 2 1/2 story wood-frame homes, your on-approach size up indicators will set the stage for your incident action plan. The main focus for this course will be size-up, determining the type of attic from the street, fire attack methods, access, ventilation options and overhaul, the importance of safely checking and extinguishing hidden fire in attic void space.
