5 thoughts on “The Fan

  1. We’ve used positive pressure attack several times with pretty good results. I think the fan has much more benefits then just after the fire is out. I think there are some very strict parameters that must be met before using the fan in the attack however. It seems that we have used it on bread and butter kitchen and bedroom fires where we know the fires location and we also have a controlled and coordinated exit point close to the fire. It seems when people say that PPA dosent work they show some video where all the rules were broken, or the training wasnt there to recognize when NOT to use the fan. We have also used the fan for exposure protection. Weve used it with great sucess on attached garage fires where the entry team fought the fire from the inside of the home into the garage. Again just like many other tactics and tools….it has its place.
