Fires in Senior Health Care Facilities
Hosted by the Plainfield Fire Territory
At 591 Moon Road Plainfield, IN
November 27, 2018 8:30 AM – 4:00PM

The program:
Everybody has them. Small towns, big towns and large cities. Senior care facilities. It’s where folks go when they can no longer care for themselves and they can be there for a myriad of reasons. These facilities take on various shapes and sizes and come with different names.

A fire incident in one of these facilities will be resource intensive. Many, if not all of the occupants, will depend on others to keep them safe. Fireground operations may take on a different complexion compared to a “bread and butter” house fire.

The program includes:
Review of building construction and fire protection features
Strategic decision making
Tactical considerations
Incident command functions
Mass casualty incident potentials
A review of notable fire incidents and case studies involving these occupancies.
Review of sample standard operating guidelines
In classroom fire simulation exercises

The Lead Instructor: Chris Tobola
Chris is a 24-year veteran of the fire service, and Sr. Captain in the Houston Fire Department. Chris is assigned to Ladder Company 51 B-Shift, on the Southwest side in the City of Houston. Previously, he was assigned to Engine 60 as a Captain, also on the SW side of Town.
