Class Details

Standpipe operations can be a complex and for some firefighters a very rare operation. Yet standpipe equipped buildings can be found in the response area of almost all fire departments. Firefighters must understand how to effectively operate from standpipe systems, especially with the reduced staffing levels that are common in today’s fire service. In this class we will discuss the standpipe system itself as well as the tactical decisions that must be made when operating from a standpipe system. This class will largely focus on hoseline and nozzle attack package selection, hoseline staffing, the identification of different standpipe valves including pressure reducing devices and valves and the adjustment of these valves, as well as stretching, advancing, and operating hoselines from standpipe systems.
