The Kenosha County Wisconsin Fire Rescue Association, is hosting a one day seminar, October 9th, 2021, in Wilmot Wisconsin.
The seminar will feature two powerful high energy presentations by Chief Isakson, during the one day event.
Chief Isakson's Presentations
In today’s fire service fires are burning hotter and reaching flashover conditions at a much quicker rate. This seminar will focus on exceeding fire flow needs and managing water during the initial hose-line advancement in an interior offensive attack. The lecture will provide a different approach in terms of water application in a “Gallons Per Second” perspective at this crucial stage in the firefight. Strategies will be presented to manage the booster tank supply until a sustainable water supply has been established. This class is extremely relevant for companies that commonly engage in fire suppression with booster tank water supply and deploy suburban fire tactics.
The fire service continues to rely on water as our primary means of extinguishment. Even though we have made tremendous advances in apparatus, bunker gear, and thermal imaging technology, WATER is still the most widely used and the most effective extinguishing agent at the majority of structure fires. With these advances, we must not forget the longtime mainstays of the fire service: 2′-inch hose combined with low pressure nozzles are still highly effective and needed to move/deliver water to its final destination ‘ the burning solid fuels. This workshop will examine how to maximize hydrant flows, booster tank efficiency, and final delivery through both 1′-inch and 2′-inch hose. We will cover when to use large-diameter hose vs. 2′-inch or three-inch hose as your supply/feeder lines. Learn the pros and cons of all size fire hose in relation to moving water and using all types of master stream devices; master stream tip size, flow, and variables; and defensive and offensive modes of attack for the best overall fire extinguishment possibilities. These most efficient fire extinguishment possibilities can only be effective if you have a complete understanding of how to get WATER on the FIRE!’
Curt “Ike” Isakson is a 30+ year veteran of the fire service, with experience working in volunteer, career, and combination departments in urban, suburban, rural, and countywide settings.
