Insights on FF Ops; Mega-Mansion and Large Area Residential; Sea-side to Country-side
June 19 @ 13:30 - 16:30Free
Presented by: Chief Christopher Naum, SFPE, CUSA
Today’s residential homes are being built larger than ever and in all community settings from rural to suburban to urban and common throughout all jurisdictions across the United States. These occupancies present significant risks and operational challenges to commanders and firefighters demanding increased knowledge and skill sets to select and employ various operational models at these structure fires.
The program provides leading insights on building construction systems, design configurations, and characteristics of common large area residential and mega-mansions–homes ranging from 4,000 to 40,000 square feet, with operational focus on the 6,000-18,000 SF residential footprint. Addressing operational concerns with a transition to footprints in sea-side, urban, suburban to country-side settings will be presented with an integrated approach to construction, operations and tactical options. Original research, modeling, a standardized approach to building classification and cutting-edge operational insights will be presented, with Near-miss and LODD case studies reinforcing topical areas
