Water Always Wins with Curt Isakson

With today’s rapid fire development, it’s more important than ever before to get water on the fire as fast as possible.

Flashovers, for example, occur in just minutes in many cases now.

But another factor these days works against us: limited staffing.

Decisions about what jobs get done first need to be based on the right critieria.

My guest today says getting water on the fire is the primary goal. Even more than search and rescue.

I’m pleased to have Curt Isakson back on Code 3.

He is currently a Battalion Chief for Escambia County Fire/Rescue in Florida where he has worked for the last 19 years.

Before that, he worked 9 years for the Pensacola Fire Department

If you’ve missed seeing him speak at a live conference, you’ve missed a lot. He’s a lot of fun to watch and you’ll learn a thing or two.

He also owns County Fire Tactics.
