CF Tactics designed HROC for you because no other like it exists. Firefighters, Fire Officers, and Fire Chiefs will receive the latest tactics, trends, and lessons learned for operating at fires in both high-rise and standpipe-equipped buildings through our lecture and hands-on training tracks. Be prepared to make notes, write a lot of things down, and ask a lot of questions, whether it’s in class or after class.

The lecture events will take place Tuesday and Wednesday in-person at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Side Convention Center in the Royal Palm Ballroom. The H.O.T. Tracks will take place Thursday at the Hilton and other nearby properties.

The speaker and instructor line up for CF Tactics HROC is filled with highly experienced and knowledgeable instructors to include their personal cadres from all over the country who share a passion for making our profession as safe as possible while being as aggressive as possible.

Our diverse group of fire service leaders will prepare you to accomplish fireground tactical priorities and deliver significant amounts of water on the fire in these challenging occupancies. Nearly 50% of all high rises in existence today are not equipped with fire protection sprinklers systems and the other 50% experience documented incidents of suppression system failure, ineffectiveness, or both.
