    Default Fire Flow

    Are you talking 100% fire involvement or is the fire just one one floor? You might do better on a section other then fire investigation in getting some help.

    Default Forms

    I have some Excel forms you might get some use out of. I use them for inspections and Preplans.

    If interested send me an email and I can get them to you.
