A select panel of distinguished fire service educators has updated the renowned Bread and Butter fireground training video series. Building on the vast knowledge of the first edition, the new updated DVDs expand on and illustrate many of the basic skills critical to successful fireground operations.
The new DVDs — with all new video and graphics — were designed specifically to demonstrate how to properly accomplish these tasks and to illustrate their effect on the fireground.
In Car Fires, Chief Doug Leihbacher covers properly responding to a vehicle fire and the hazards associated with this type of call, as well as how to properly extinguish the fire whether it is in the engine, trunk or passenger compartment.
Chief Leihbacher discusses the safety systems and materials in vehicles that we must be cognizant of in order to stay safe on the fireground. These include magnesium, as well as air bags and struts.
