View From the Street: Residential & Multi-Family Dwellings

While many departments train extensively on commercial building fires, residential fires claim more firefighters and civilians annually.  In this webcast, veteran FDNY Battalion Chiefs Richard Blatus and Thomas Richardson provide an in-depth look at operational tactics and procedures at a variety residential and multiple-dwelling fires. Construction hazards, operational difficulties, and tactical decisions will be reviewed with an emphasis on the types of information the incident commander needs from the crews to make crucial fireground decisions. Attendees will walk off with a better understanding of what commanders and firefighters need to know when operating in both old and new types of residential construction.
