Captain Douglas J. Mitchell, Jr., Fire Department City of New York

More firefighters are seriously injured and killed while operating at residential building fires than any other building type. This dynamic and interactive six-hour lecture will address 25 critical firefighting issues common to the residential building. The program will discuss areas of firefighters preparation, response and operations, all of which are vital to successfully mitigating these potentially deadly incidents. Students will learn "street-smart" tips, tactics and take-home practical company drills to remedy the commonly encountered errors allowing the students to bring back more than just what they heard.

Lessons learned from the incident will include discussions on various topics and issues associated with the incident, including Multiple buildings on fire with exposures, an MCI with over 35 people involved, collapse of 3 connected apartment buildings, Incident Command Structure with an emphasis on the first chiefs to arrive on scene and a review of the Unified Command that was eventually established, which included several agencies, such as: FBI, ATF, MSP, MCPD, several utility companies, elected officials from the County and State, Red Cross and others
