    Call it fast interior or offensive, arrival on scene begins with the implementation of apparatus and crew. Regardless of standards, definitions or cultural norms, for many fire departments initial attack means limited personnel and equipment moving toward the front door. With those challenges comes the potential for real problems on the fireground.   “Air attack resources were severely hampered by wind on the Woolsey fire,” Imbrenda, a public information officer with L.A.

This report describes a computer model for computing arrival times of firefighting resources for an initial attack on a fire. The model was developed to assist the fire dispatcher with the allocation of available resources quickly and efficiently.

The model requires a low-speed interactive terminal, avail. Computing arrival times of firefighting resources for initial attack. [Berkeley, Calif.]: Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, Forest Service, U.S.

advantage of the important relationships that fire use has with initial attack. For example, because many of the fire management resources that are employed for initial attack are also those employed on use fires, an integrated program can take advantage of joint.

Now that we have decided which mode of attack is appropriate and what our needed fire flow should be we can now select the appropriate size attack line.

Top 3 Factors For Selecting The Best Hose Line: 1. Fire Flow Necessity and the Conditions We Face: As firefighters we are creatures of habit. Although we respond to different types and size of fires we usually handle 90% of the fires we.

Initial rehab when incident concluded within hours. Generally accomplished w/ fire resources. Long term rehab, expected longer than hours. Will require assistance of external resources requested through dispatch. Every department has its own idea of how to best approach the initial fire attack.

Call it fast interior or offensive, arrival on scene begins with the implementation of apparatus and crew. If the average response time is 10 minutes, a crew is likely to find a structure already compromised upon arrival.

Time is not on the firefighter's side. There are new, ever-present dangers that. Fire suppression principles apply to initial attack as well as to large fires or parts of large fires.

Our current quick attack vehicles are 4x4 flatbed 1 ton pickups with gallon slip in tanks with gpm pumps. The trucks do not carry any SCBA's and are equipped with 1" booster lines and ' of 1.

Consider the air track and natural exchange of air in the building; for the most part it is being replaced by the smoke and an increase in pressure from the fire. Now the initial attack lines.

The company officer is responsible for initial firefighting strategy, personnel safety, and the overall activities of the commander with needed resources. (10) Fire apparatus maintenance personnel: Apparatus mechanics repair, Coordinate an interior attack line team.

Monitor all critical operational talk groups. Observe fire conditions, note the progress of the fire attack, and know. The second thing for consideration is the time of arrival of firefighting personnel.

It can either be before the building is badly involved and remains fairly stable or it can occur after the building has been assaulted by fire and is beginning to become unstable. Select the proper attack hoseline and nozzle based on the location and size of the fire.
