Fire Fighting in Canada

Checking in . . .

The first two days of the trip have been very informative. We got a chance to see the production facility at Task Force Tips and attended some great sessions today in the pre conference sessions. The tour of the facility was very impressive, learned alot about how the nozzles and appliances are made and what is coming new for 2010. The sessions I attended today covered scene sizeup and tactical decisions where we reviewed helmet cam footage from an Oklahoma Batt Chief on three different calls, going through the call and looking at the decisions that were made and the difficulties that they faced. This afternoon I attended a session on storage tank facility fires. Great review of application methods and tank construction features. Looking forward to the opening of the general sessions tomorrow and the opening of the trade fair floor later in the week.
