Safe Law Enforcement Operations on the Fireground
Calendar Items During:
Wednesday, September 26 - Wednesday, September 26, 2018
Holiday Inn Chicago - Tinley Park Convention Center in Tinley Park, Illinois
The ISFSI LEO fire ground training curriculum addresses the roles and responsibilities of law enforcement officers responding and controlling the fire scene by tying together UL/NIST/ISFSI modern fire behavior research and the appropriate sequence of actions from arriving law enforcement officers.
Fires today are burning faster, hotter and more dangerous than ever before. The simple acts of breaking a window or forcing open a door can immediately impact fire growth and make interior conditions untenable. When confronted with incidents when law enforcement arrive ahead of the fire department, your safety could be compromised quickly due to modern fuels and changes in building construction.
Police officers on patrol in their communities are in the best position to limit the oxygen available to fires inside compartments like residential and commercial structures. It makes sense to instruct them on how to control the flow path during a search or locating the fire and, in turn, limiting the extent of the fire and protect any occupants prior to the fire departments arrival.
This class is appropriate for law enforcement professionals as well as fire service professionals who are looking for resources to improve fireground safety.
