2 ½ Fire Attack April 19, 2017 1:00 pm

Presented by Lieutenant Henry Gruba

"Big fire, big water." "Let’s pull a 2 ½’" just in case we need it." "GPM’s put out the BTU’s." All phrases we have heard throughout our Fire Service career. But what do they really mean? Are they just lip-service or can we back up these statements? Join IFSI Field Instructor Henry Gruba, on April 19, 2017 at 1pm Central, as he leads a web-based discussion on "The Forgotten, Misunderstood, Versatile 2 ½" Line".

Henry Gruba, a 32-year veteran of the Fire Service, retired as a Lieutenant from the Waukegan, IL Fire Department. He is currently a Field Instructor and eLearning Program Manager with the Illinois Fire Service Institute, Champaign, Illinois. Henry instructs firefighting classes ranging from basic skills to company officer.
