[Webinar] Instruct-o-Gram Live: Basics of Standpipes
The ISFSI Instruct-o-Gram Live webinar series brings a recently published Instruct-o-Gram alive with the author presenting key topics on implementing the material in your department. This month we are discussing how having a basic understanding of Standpipes systems will ensure firefighters know how these systems are constructed, how to use them correctly, and also troubleshoot problems during responses. Standpipe systems allow firefighters to access water supply and put hose lines more quickly and more efficiently, which allows rescue and fire suppression save lives.
The program should address:
- Identify Fire Department Connections or FDCs
- Define the different classes of standpipe systems
- Describe the components of a building standpipe system
- Explain fire department general use of standpipe systems in the course of structural firefighting
