Building Profiles for Command Considerations:
The ability to make proper decisions on the fireground and establish sound strategic objectives start with the ability of the fireground commander to properly identify and undress a structure. Sound tactical doctrine based upon building design, features and building components are the bases of this program. With complete understanding of the unique hazards associated with occupancy groups and types, the fireground commander can correctly establish the fire fight based upon specific building profiles. This course covers specific building profiles for firegound operations and command features including “Rescue Profiles” and making the building “Behave” for firefighter safety considerations.
