Drill #118: Fireground Orientation
How importtant is fireground orientation? A common denominator in many firefighter fatalities is the firefighter being lost or disoriented within the structure! In this drill, readers will learn the best ways to achieve fireground orientation.
The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.
Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.
Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
