This 6-day course is designed to provide Incident Commanders (IC's) with an understanding of the fire protection features that are installed in buildings. Knowing how these systems work and their proper use will assist IC's to achieve strategic and tactical success. The course will emphasize the value of collecting this information during preincident planning and how to relay this knowledge to other firefighters who must respond and function effectively using these systems under emergency conditions. Topics addressed in this course include developing model preincident plans; the importance of collecting and sharing information with other emergency responders; and understanding the fundamental operations, strengths, and limitations of built-in fire protection systems including automatic sprinklers, standpipes, fire pumps, fire detection and alarm systems, smoke management systems, and special hazard fire protection equipment.
