In this webcast, Deputy Chief Jeffrey Pindelski will answer some tough questions about what we should be paying closer attention to with our self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and how training with them will help us perform essential tasks on today's fireground. He will provide webcast attendees with a blueprint to analyze and update their department's training programs to keep safe and survive fireground challenges. Topics include updates to NFPA 1981 (the standard for SCBA), fire and smoke behavior and making tactical decisions while operating in deadly smoke.
