FDIC 2018: Initial High-Rise Operations for Departments with Limited Staffing

Bill Carey

An FDIC 2018 training event



Stephen Kalman
Deputy Fire Chief
Hackensack NJ FD
Friday, April 27, 2018 10:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.


This class addresses tactical and operational objectives at residential high-rise fires focusing on smaller departments with limited companies and staffing. Having a strong and solid standard operating procedure and initiating it on every high-rise response are key factors in having a positive outcome. Not every high-rise fire is a major event, and having a solid plan can prevent the one-room fire from becoming one. Command operations, engine company/standpipe operations, and wind-driven fires are also covered.

The learning objectives will be to enhance Departments and firefighters abilities to be prepared for and operate at a fire in a residential high rise building with limited staffing by sharing experiences and procedures.
