    Default Air management?

    In January my department will be rolling out "Air Management" training in an attempt to comply with NFPA 1404.

    For me, this is a relatively new concept.

    How many departments are currently doing this and has it been successfull?

    Thanks in advance!

    You should have read in an earlier post from me that we do Air Management Training at my Department. It is covered in the Training I will send to you.

    Our department does it, as do our neighboring dept's. Our specific SOP for it is based on large area commercial structures, or other situation in which air use is a concern. It asks the ff to use 1/3 going in, 1/3 coming out, 1/3 in reserve.
