Aaron Heller / On-Scene Training Associates

The focus is on strategies and tactics for responding to fires in big box stores and commercial buildings, including taxpayers and office buildings. These structures are becoming increasingly common in all types of communities, whether served by career, volunteer, or combination departments. Unfortunately, many departments have never adjusted their operations when encountering these structures. As history has shown, misjudging the risks involved in these buildings can be tragic. This is not a rehashing of past incidents but a springboard for preventing injuries or line-of-duty deaths.

Aggressive interior attack, exterior attack, and transitional attack are examined from the perspective of their feasibility, flexibility, and effectiveness in relation to company staffing, department culture, response models, and buildings.
