Engine Company Playbook *Live Fire*

At every fire a line must be stretched! No matter the building construction or the occupancy type, this action must be taken. In this class we will take a no nonsense approach to the coveted “Engine Company Playbook”. Do you call the correct play to meet the needs of the fire? Do you contain the ability to call an audible when necessary? The Engine Company Playbook focuses on first due tactics, efficient methods of fire attack, and alternative methods when the preconnect just wont cut it. This course will give participants “options” for success. We will cover multiple ways to set-up lines that will work for you regardless of your manpower. We will discuss target flow rates, attack packages, and estimating the stretch. We will also make some alternate stretches, and discuss decision making for fires in private and multi-family dwellings. Every occupancy type, residential, commercial, and high-rise, has its own challenges. We will discuss these challenges and how to call the right play. This class is not your “cookie cutter” class. It will allow students to practice and refine both their Engine Company skills and their fireground decision-making. This hands-on program incorporates aggressive Engine Company operations and real-world scenarios. Our instructors will share fireground tested tips and tricks to help make your engine company more effective, regardless of size or staffing. It’s time to start building your playbook for game time!
