It has been said, “So goes First-Due, So goes the Incident!” Our incidents are changing in scope, impact, and complexity – and so must our ability to RAPIDLY survey and decide the right course of action when first arriving. Often, the smoke issuing from a building is the only clue that a hostile fire event will quickly trap or kill firefighters. “Reading Smoke” tells us how to read a fire a predict its progress – the “Art of First-Due” takes the information to the next level and creates a useful package to help the first-arriving Company Officer or Battalion Chief make the right decision. This is NOT your typical size-up class!
