Training & Tactics Talk: Go or No Go Strategy & Tactics

Download this Podcast »

Host Douglas K. Cline and Battalion Chief Les Stephens, of the Garland, TX, Fire Department, look at "Go or No Go Strategy & Tactics" for the fire service.

They will explore tactics used in dwellings and commercial buildings. Both chiefs feel that because dwelling fires are more common, the same tactics are deployed at both. Could that be a reason for fireground injuries and deaths?

Stephens discusses the conditions that dictate offensive or defensive attacks in commercial structure fires. Those factors include building anatomy, resources and fire behavior.

They also respond to a listener's questions on what truly is back to the basics for fire service training.
