UNDERSTANDING & FIGHTING BASEMENT FIRES
The Princeton Junction Volunteer Fire Company and the Mercer County Fire Academy have partnered with the International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) to offer the Understanding & Fighting Basement Fires course under an AFG Grant.
The ISFSI “Understanding and Fighting Basement Fires” program is one of the most talked-about educational experiences in the fire service today. Basement fires present a significant hazard and make tactical choices a challenge for even the most seasoned firefighter. Line of duty deaths and injuries have encouraged departments to reflect on their current tactics, effects of flow path, and safety considerations for basement fires.
The ISFSI “Understanding and Fighting Basement Fires” 8-hour classroom curriculum addresses types of basement access, fire attack tactics, nozzles and appliances, and tactical considerations based on research and real life experience. The ISFSI partnership with UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute under an AFG grant brings the research to the classroom and from the classroom to the streets.
