Vacant properties used to be an inner-city problem but that is no longer the case. Suburban and metropolitan areas have seen an increased presence of abandoned residential and vacant commercial properties. Many of these buildings are not only prone to fires, they’re occupied by drug users, gangs, copper thieves, squatters, and vagrants. These properties may be structurally unstable with holes in the floors, open roofs, rotted floor decking, fortified board ups, window bars, and the scene of prior burns. In addition, firefighters may have to navigate broken glass, tires, needles, and hoarding conditions. We can’t always assume that these buildings are unoccupied and go defensive. This presentation focuses on size-up, locating victims, unique rapid search and rescue options, savvy laddering and bridging, forcible entry, safe aggressive strategies and methodical tactics.
