It’s in the Basement

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

A fire in the basement is different than any other fire to which we respond. Fire spread from basement areas through vertical and horizontal voids will cause severe structural instability and critical fire loads within a building.  “It’s in the Basement” are four words that should make everyone on the fireground immediately rethink their strategies and tactics. Usually this radio transmission is heard after several minutes on the fireground, while members are searching the structure under heavy heat and smoke conditions only to discover the fire is burning below them. Topics to be covered include building construction, size up concerns, proper hand line placement, ventilation and search procedures.
