Tactics & Applications

Salvage and Overhaul

Tactic:

  • Reduce the need to pull sheetrock, flooring and sheathing during overhaul.
  • Use controlled application of direct water streams inside walls, ceilings, floors and void spaces to stop extension and fully extinguish the fire.
  • Reduce fatigue by working off of a 1 in. line instead of an 1¾ in.
  • Use thermal imaging to locate hotspots and pierce affected areas.
  • Flow water until steam production and evaluate with thermal imaging.

Tool Configuration:

  • Standard Length AttackSpike™ with Shield Tip.
