HROC 2022 LECTURE & H.O.T.

HROC is The Only Annual High Rise Operations Fire Conference. 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.

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 and Workshops will take place Thursday at the Hilton and other nearby properties.

The speaker and instructor line up is filled with highly experienced and knowledgeable instructors from all across the country sharing national and regional methods.

They even bring their personal cadres from all over the country who love the job and share a passion for making our profession as safe as possible while being as aggressive as possible.

The training cadre’s at HROC have have years of credible, vetted, and trusted fire duty experience they will share with you over your three days and nights on Pensacola Beach.

This 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.

CLASS | Command & Control Mid & High Rise Fires

HOT | ULFSRI Hallway | Stakes & Alt

In this class we will take a practical look at where our water goes, and how our choice of stream and advancement pattern affect our environment.  Where does our water go?  It’s rare that we actually get to see what our water does when it hits a surface during a fire.  Conditions are typically too obstructed by smoke or other things to get a good picture of what our water is doing when it leaves our nozzle. 

Does it create a sprinkler and fan out in hundreds of little droplets?  A lot of us were taught that if we find ourselves in a bad spot, to put our heads down with the nozzle pointing straight up at the ceiling and keep it open until the situation gets better.  Is that really the best way? 
In this class we will help answer those questions and more.  The next piece in your fire attack is your advance.  We have all heard many different debates on whether or not you can push fire…can you? 

Can you as a nozzle operator push heat and smoke with your nozzle?  If you could, are there times when you shouldn’t?  In this class we will go over if and how you can move air with your nozzle, also talking about times it can be beneficial, and when it might not be.  The purpose of this class is to give you the practical knowledge gained by research, to help you be more effective with the nozzle and have a better awareness of your actions at your next fire.  This class truly takes science to the streets.
