GET WATER ON THE FIRE!
Although a simple concept for those involved in the fire service, “getting water on the fire” can prove to be a difficult, and sometimes deadly, task. During this seminar we will briefly review the basics of fire dynamics, especially in the age of mostly polycarbonate (plastics) material, and their effect on fire development. We will also discuss some of the newer, scientific concepts applied to the fire service including flow paths, ventilation profiles, coordinated and transitional fire attacks. Lastly, we will identify how these concepts have fortified some of our oldest tactics and perhaps have changed some of our thoughts specifically related to putting water on the fire.
