We have all heard plenty about UL/NIST studies. This class will specifically look at the deployment of tactics in a small to medium sized, career, combination, and volunteer fire departments. What we must all know is that there are very few, always and never situations when it comes to tactical deployment on the fireground. We need to know all the tactics and learn when they apply or do not. Be ready for some great discussion and the who, what, why, where, and how of the modern fireground.
