Intro to High-Rise Ops
Introduction to High-Rise Operations is a course that helps familiarize the deployment of firefighting tactics involving High-Rise packs, standpipes and basic attack strategies for High and Medium Rise buildings.
The Denver Fire Department (DFD), in 1998, implemented a new high-rise firefighting and standpipe equipment package and new methods for assembling, storing, transporting, and stretching the high-rise/standpipe packs. Fire departments across the country have introduced numerous methods for carrying and stretching these hose packs over the past several years. Some have been effective, others were effective in theory only, and others were downright ineffective.
