This six-day course is designed to provide Incident Commanders (IC) with the tools they need to conduct proper pre-incident planning for the target hazards in their communities. This knowledge will help the IC identify what fire protection systems are available at these sites, how they work, and how to use them in developing firefighting objectives and making strategic and tactical firefighting decisions.
The course covers the fundamental procedures for gathering and using information related to the fire protection systems that an IC may need during a fire or related emergency. It includes the basic concepts of pre-incident planning and the strategies an officer might use to share this information with other responders. The course describes the components of sprinkler systems, stationary fire pumps, standpipe systems, fire alarm systems, smoke management systems, and specialty fire protection systems (e.g., Halon™ suppression systems, hood-range systems, water mist systems, etc.).
