This Webcast is geared to illustrate key points in preparation, size-up, fireground decision making, and communications. Videos, case studies, fireground radio transmissions, and interactive fire simulations are used to present the challenges inherent in making rapid emergency decisions. Viewers are offered tools to help them perform a skillful size-up, communicate effectively, and project control over chaotic emergency incidents.
This Webcast combines the research and outreach initiatives of the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) and presents curriculum relevant to strategic and tactical decision making and developing best practices for mounting an intelligent interior fire attack.
