The numerous dangers associated with advancing hoselines into these confined spaces while companies operate on the floors above have been linked to multiple firefighter fatalities injuries and RIC deployments over the past few years. Valuable information from recent scientific studies by UL and NIST have pointed to intensified heat release rates increased use of lightweight wood construction wind driven fires improper fire suppression tactics a lack of adequate ventilation and inadequate water flow (GPM) as potential factors contributing to this rise in fatalities injuries and RIC operations. To enhance the ability of firefighters to implement an appropriate incident action plan safely and effectively at these incidents this program will provide an interactive review of these studies to ensure the attendees recognize and embrace the critical importance this new information has had on the preferred suppression methods at below grade fires. In addition the instructors will also discuss the numerous hazards that will be found in both residential and commercial basement fires while delivering a variety of exceptional information on developing and applying safe and effective fireground strategy and tactics at these incidents. Topics to be covered include incident management size-up search ventilation attack line selection and advancement pre and post control overhaul FF safety and rapid intervention. Several case studies of floor collapse(s) firefighter maydays and firefighter disorientation events that have occurred at recent basement fires will also be presented and discussed. “It’s in the basement” are four words that should make every firefighter immediately rethink how these below grade fires should be approached. This program is designed to communicate the knowledge skills abilities and confidence required to address these unique and dangerous incidents.

Moran Fire Chief Brewster MA and John J. Lewis Lieutenant (Ret.) City of Passaic FD and Bergen County Fire Academy Fires in a below grade areas are unlike any other fire to which we respond. The numerous dangers associated with advancing hoselines into these confined spaces while companies operate on the floors above have been linked to multiple firefighter fatalities injuries and RIC deployments over the past few years. Valuable information from recent scientific studies by UL and NIST have pointed to intensified heat release rates increased use of lightweight wood construction wind driven fires improper fire suppression tactics a lack of adequate ventilation and inadequate water flow (GPM) as potential factors contributing to this rise in fatalities injuries and RIC operations. To enhance the ability of firefighters to implement an appropriate incident action plan safely and effectively at these incidents this program will provide an interactive review of these studies to ensure the attendees recognize and embrace the critical importance this new information has had on the preferred suppression methods at below grade fires. In addition the instructors will also discuss the numerous hazards that will be found in both residential and commercial basement fires while delivering a variety of exceptional information on developing and applying safe and effective fireground strategy and tactics at these incidents. Topics to be covered include incident management size-up search ventilation attack line selection and advancement pre and post control overhaul FF safety and rapid intervention. Several case studies of floor collapse(s) firefighter maydays and firefighter disorientation events that have occurred at recent basement fires will also be presented and discussed. “It’s in the basement” are four words that should make every firefighter immediately rethink how these below grade fires should be approached. This program is designed to communicate the knowledge skills abilities and confidence required to address these unique and dangerous incidents.
