In Video #7: Standpipe Operations, John Norman details:
- The various types of standpipes that are found in buildings today, their intended uses, and how to properly implement them in a fire attack
- The inherent weaknesses of the standpipe water supply, as well as the significance of selecting the appropriate attack stairs
- Proper components for a standpipe kit
The Fire Officer's Handbook of Tactics Video Series is based on the 3rd edition of the best-selling book and study guide by John Norman.
