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 Search and Rescue, Chief Skip Coleman discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the many different search techniques that have been popular through the history of the fire service, and explains why oriented search is the new standard for fireground search for bread and butter structures.
Chief Coleman explains the duties of the officer in charge of the search, when to search, where to search, and the importance of maintaining continuity of search. Chief Coleman then looks at a few common misconceptions of search.
