Hoarders: A First Responder’s Nightmare – Mankato, MN

April 26 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Minnesota State Fire Department Association 144th Annual Conference and Fire School
Hoarders: A First Responder’s Nightmare – Mankato, MN
1 Civic Plaza Mankato, MN
Friday, April 26, 2019 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM

They live among us. Compulsive hoarders. A compulsive hoarder collects and keeps a lot of items, even things that  appear  useless  or  of  little  value  to  most  people.  These  items  clutter  the  living  spaces  and  can  prohibit  people from  using  their  rooms.  This environment  becomes responder’s nightmare when a fire, medical emergency or other critical incident requires entry into these spaces. An on-going risk assessment is a priority for the safety and welfare of first responders as well as other who may be inside the structure. Following an in-depth classroom presentation and interactive discussion and a review of case studies, students will participate in several interactive simulation exercises to prepare for a hoarder’s incident.
