In this class, students learn about the challenges unique to high-rise buildings such as the mixture of commercial, high hazard storage, assembly and residential occupancies. Understanding the construction features, detection-suppression-communications systems, and strategic and tactical considerations required of the command personnel are discussed. Various firefighting problems are illustrated as they relate to fire department connections, methods of supplying standpipes or sprinklers, hose layouts and deployment, and command and control issues. Instructors also cover accountability, stack affect, rescue profile, ventilation concerns, and fire suppression challenges outside the reach of pre-connected hose lines.
