While many departments train
extensively on commercial building fires, residential fires claim
more firefighters and civilians annually. In this webcast, veteran
FDNY Battalion Chiefs Richard Blatus and Thomas Richardson provide
an in-depth look at operational tactics and procedures at a variety
residential and multiple-dwelling fires. Construction hazards,
operational difficulties, and tactical decisions will be reviewed
with an emphasis on the types of information the incident commander
needs from the crews to make crucial fireground decisions. The
presentation offers a better understanding of what commanders and
firefighters need to know when operating in both old and new types
of residential construction.

in the FDNY assigned to Battalion 38 in Brooklyn. With 33 years in
