In Episode 16, check out UL FSRI’s Advisory Board Member, Cobb County Fire Department Captain Sean Gray as he discusses a tactical consideration from the Fire Attack study: Interior Suppression With Only Smoke Showing.
Upon arrival, determining the location and extent of the fire is an important part of the initial size-up and often step one in developing an initial action plan. When the fire is not venting out an opening, determining the location can be difficult. In this instance, an interior attack may be the most effective way to locate, confine, and suppress the fire.
