Drill #136: Exposures
If you have any time in the fire service, you should have some understanding of exposure fires. Readers will learn the differences in fighting and/or containing interior and exterior exposure fires.
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.
