The ISFSI “Understanding and Fighting Basement Fires” program is one of the most talked-about educational experiences in the fire service today.
Basement fires present a significant hazard and make tactical choices a challenge for even the most seasoned firefighter. Line of duty deaths and injuries have encouraged departments to reflect on their current tactics, effects of flow path, and safety considerations for basement fires.
The ISFSI “Understanding and Fighting Basement Fires” 8-hour classroom curriculum addresses types of basement access, fire attack tactics, nozzles and appliances, and tactical considerations based on research and real life experience. The ISFSI partnership with UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute brings the research to the classroom and from the classroom to the streets
The ISFSI instructor for the program is Retired Captain Bill D’Agostino from the Burnsville Minnesota Fire Department. Bill is a phenomenal instructor. His positive personality, presentation style and practical knowledge is second to none. To learn a bit more about Bill, please see the linked article below.
