Making the Case for the Half-Story in Your Size-Up
Painting a picture of what the first arriving fire unit encounters is vital when giving the initial fire scene size up. Being able to accurately and effectively communicate the current situation to other responding units is a good first step in working towards a successful outcome to an emergency. By clearly stating the conditions, occupancy type and construction features, we are giving responding units the ability to formulate their own pre-arrival plans. Communicating the presence of a half-story in a residential occupancy informs incoming units to much more than just a construction feature. This webinar will discuss how the life safety and operational implications can be much greater for both occupants and responders when we encounter fires in a residence with a half-story.
