Establishes a proper firefighting mindset and promotes maintaining preparedness for the extreme physical and mental demands of firefighting operations in high-rise and standpipe-equipped buildings. Countless false alarms, along with "good luck" while relying on bad habits, have greatly exacerbated the deadly disease of complaceny in high-rise alarm response. Covered topics include: standpipe system pressure regulating devices, pressure-restricting devices, and pressure-reducing valves; cautious and disciplined elevator use during high-rise operations; elevator rescue operations; proper engine company suppression selection, including techniques to operate more powerful firefighting weapons with limited manpower; air support ops during high-rise emergencies, without or without an internal resource.
