    Thanks for the post...I haven't found any posts to reply to yet but I did post one myself but in the wrong section.
    i wanted to know about all your methods of entering and dealing with basement/Cellar fires which have only the one entry and exit and would you use tac vent/PPV?
    If you could direct me in the right direction or post it for me I would be very grateful,

    Many thanks Firechick...Regards Jonners.

    I am talking to my husband right now and we are discussing what the plan would be here.
    Yes positive pressure ventilation would be used. He could talk to you for hours...
    He wants to know what your tac vent procedure is?
    He says it depends on the layout of the home/structure. And how familiar you are with it, that will determine part of your attack strategy.
    He says basically basement fires are a pain in the butt because you just dont know how the fire is going to behave. We have a piercing nozzle and a basement nozzle that are used along with the hoselines. All are foam capable so that would also be considered (class A).
    You should contact me via email so that my husband can fill you in on all the tactics used here in normal and unusual situations.
