This Webcast analyzes the current training on rescuing down firefighters from a more proactive viewpoint. Included are tasks that can be accomplished by the rapid intervention team (RIT) to “soften up” not just the structure but also the entire scene so that we can access the structure in a more rapid fashion to rescue the firefighter.
What if you could keep hundreds of low-acuity patients a week from having to needlessly go to the emergency room?

This class provides an opportunity for the UL Firefighting Safety Research Institute (FSRI), along with four of the technical panel members who served on both the suppression study and the coordinated fire attack study, to present the highlights and fireground applications of the research. This research, conducted over the past 10 years, was focused primarily on ventilation and suppression, independent from one another, at fires in single-family dwellings.
This webcast is backed by formally defined parameters and will answer questions about the aggressive interior attack. Viewers will engage in discussions that challenge the status quo on today’s fireground. Learn the answers to these questions and others: When should you be aggressive? When should you not be aggressive? What role does building construction play in interior operations?
The Fire Department of New York (FDNY) has conducted an extensive and detailed examination and evaluation of best practices for cleaning apparatus. These studies focused on all types of contamination that could result in adverse health issues for firefighters as well as different cleaning methods and procedures. From this extensive work, the FDNY produced a functional set of practical policies and procedures.
