More firefighters are seriously injured and killed while operating at residential building fires than any other
building type. This dynamic and interactive 8 hour lecture will address 25 critical firefighting issues common to
the residential building. The program will discuss areas of firefighters preparation, response and operations, all
of which are vital to successfully mitigating these potentially deadly incidents. Students will learn "street-smart"
tips, tactics and take home practical company drills to remedy the commonly encountered errors allowing the
students to bring back more than just what they heard.
