Firehouse Weekly Drill: No. 146 - Stack Effect

Drill #146: Stack Effect

If your jurisdiction has any high-rise structures, then you need to have an understanding of “Stack Effect.” Readers will learn the ins and outs and, more importantly, the ups and downs of stack effect.

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.
