    What are some of the similarities and differences that exist in the tactics and strategies used to combat high-rise fires versus low-rise fires?

    1. Why did you post two threads with the same question?

    2. What exactly are you looking for?(school report or something)

    3. Pull line, enter building, put fire out> this applies to both very well..

    Very broad question, so there's my very broad answer..

    "ok, hypothetically if this building was on fire.... we'd take a similar approach, let's put water on the fire"

    Type of construction?
    Size of fire?
    Extent, Loaction, Contents?
    Man power levels?

    Simply, put a line (the appropriate flow) in service and on the fire, support gets done (ventilation, s+r, utilities, ladders up....), stretch a back up or additional attack lines, until it goes out or we need to get out.
