The student is presented with a more complex fire and rescue problem in this simulation. It depicts a fire in a six-story college dormitory. This occupied structure is of ordinary construction, which presents a severe rescue problem, in addition to ventilation and confinement challenges.

The student is involved in the decision-making of the establishment of Divisions and Groups as needed and assignment of crews or units to perform the following tasks:

  • Conduct primary search and rescue.
  • Establish a water supply.
  • Initiate fire attack.
  • Ventilate the structure.
  • Set up rehab.
  • Conduct a secondary search.
  • Conduct overhaul on the fire building.

The student is required to implement mass casualty incident procedures due to the number of victims, plus the necessary command structure to handle the triage, treatment and transportation of victims.

Estimated completion time: one hour.
