“Rules of Engagement for Positive-Pressure Attack”
We were proud to sponsor a free webcast for firefighters on positive pressure attack (PPA) which ran from August 2016 to August 2017. The particular webcast is no longer available, but this PPA training from UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) is excellent:
What: Training from the world-renowned international firefighting conference, FDIC
Why: Instructs Fire Fighters on How to Use Positive Pressure Attack (PPA)
When: On-demand until August 2017
Class description: There are proven methods for putting PPA into operation safely and effectively. This class looked at decades’ worth of practical application using fans for ventilating fire structures. Firefighter safety and victim survivability necessitate controlling the fire environment.
This class taught proven methods for safely and effectively putting positive pressure attack into operation. Footage from decades of using fans for ventilating fire structures is utilized to demonstrate the principles presented. The premise is that firefighter safety and victim survivability necessitate controlling the fire environment, and PPA is a method by which to do so.
“I’ve never seen a firefighter fall through a flowerbed.” ~ Chief Garcia, contrasting vertical ventilation and PPA.
This presentation was delivered by Fire Chief Kriss Garcia and moderated by Bobby Halton. Kriss Garcia served on the fire fighter panel for the UL FSRI PPV Study. Any questions on PPA may be sent to Ventry Solutions, and our in-house PPA expert, James Neils, will respond.
