The 360 Degree Size-Up & More Webinar sponsored by Five Alarm Task Force with Steve Greene:

Firefighters are well aware of the value of a 360 degree size-up on the fire ground. Numerous LODD’s cite the failure to a 360 degree size-up as one of the consistent contributing factors to these firefighter deaths. In addition to this, the lack of a 360 degree size-up, missed cues, and critical fire ground factors on a size-up often contribute to the loss of the structure during the incident. With only seconds to assess a building and develop an incident action plan, firefighters must be more educated, highly trained, and possess more building construction & fire behavior knowledge than ever before. Our humble contribution to assist firefighters in this endeavor is to offer a round table of experienced fire service leaders who will offer their piece of the puzzle of knowledge in this area. The following guests will offer their unique perspective on this subject:
