The first video in this new series describes the basic approach to operating on a peaked-roof and conducting ventilation operations safely and efficiently. Firefighter Pressler discusses roof styles often encountered by fire personnel, equipment needs, roof access, and types of cuts required for successful ventilation. Fireground safety procedures are constantly addressed, along with proper tool use and roof movement.
