NEW HIGH RISE SEMINAR - High rise firefighting is not something you can figure out when you arrive at the scene. Knowing the important principles, strategies and tactics is vital to an effective and safe conclusion. Whether your fire department protect a few or a few hundred high rise buildings, every member of the department needs to be properly TRAINED to handle these rare and dangerous operations.
