Tactical Vent Practices 

This two-hour online presentation will cover an array of content revealing those options available to complete efficient and effective ventilation.

Ventilation is often misunderstood, misused, and sometimes considered a bad practice. However, when the principles are clearly explained and the practices well executed, ventilation is a most valuable tool on the fireground.

Vertical, horizontal, and positive pressure are the options to pick from. A strong officer only needs to know that his or her company or group is responsible for ventilation and should require very little directions except to coordinate with the attack group.

From rookie to seasoned veteran, this program is a great investment!
