  • Firefighter Safety & Public Expectation
    • Taking risks in a measured way and in a way that is as safe as possible – but nevertheless still taking risks – must be intrinsic to the role of a Fire Service if itis to be effective.
  • Operational Flexibility
    • Responsive, flexible, and future proofed in terms of continuity of service provision and operational efficiency.
  • Environmental impact
    • Preventing impact and pollution through the implementation of Environmental Strategies. Targeted at demonstrating best practice in environmental management.

  • Need to deal with the new financial reality.
  • Need to keep firefighters safe.
  • Need to keep the public safe…..but -
  • Also want to continue to reduce damage and the cost of fire…………this can only be -
  • Achieved by embracing, adapting, or adopting new technology.
product focus the dangers
Product FocusThe dangers
  • The tool can become the problem!
    • Over emphasis on cutting at the expense of cooling.
    • Resistance on the bases of safety.
    • Appears to attack traditional methods.
    • Will be seen as an alternative not complementary.
    • Will tend to become part of a long evaluation.
    • At worst becomes a specialist tool, and…
    • The specialist tool will not be used.
    • Lack of use will reinforce resistance to make the purchase decision.
focusing on the method
Focusing on the method
  • Effective application will improve safety, enhance efficiency, and protect the environment.
  • Speed of response = speed of extinction.
  • Responsive to complex buildings, materials and fire loading.

The cutting extinguisher is:
  • effective as a tool supporting traditional firefighting operations.
  • very effective as a first response firefighting method, enhancing traditional tactics.
  • most effective as an embedded operational system which is fully integrated into all aspects of operational response and command awareness.

Objective

Firefighters operate outside the building, outside the collapse zone.

Saving the building is no longer an option without excessive risk to firefighting personnel.

Objective

Firefighters operate directly within the hazard zone or fire compartment within the building, where benefit outweighs risk –Risk of dynamic and aggressive change in fire conditions will always be present.

Low Risk Offensive Inside Operations

  • The application of the cutting extinguisher will, in isolation or when integrated with traditional firefighting methods, significantly reduce the risk to firefighters during structural firefighting operations, whilst also increasing performance and efficiency.
  • It will facilitate safer and more effective firefighting operations, and will significantly extend the command options within the risk profile of the incident.
  • When used sequentially, the cutting extinguisher will complement and enhance traditional internal firefighting methods.
  • Water damage is substantially reduced, and environmental impact is minimised.

Defensive outside attack

Offensive outside attack

Command Objective

To provide an effective means of an offensive attack from the relative safety of a defensive position without the need to expose firefighters to internal risks.

Outcome

Rapid control and stablisation of the fire conditions from a position of low risk.

Command Objective

To ensure that firefighting personnel are not exposed to excessive risk, based on the nature of the fire and the potential for structural collapse of the building.

Outcome

limiting fire damage to the boundary of the building resulting in prolonged but safer firefighting operations. Consequence - high levels of damage, social, and environmental impact

Offensive inside attack

Command Objective

To rapidly respond to a high risk internal compartment fire without the need to significantly increase the risk parameters of the fire situation.

Outcome

Facilitating rapid sequential traditional attack options under significantly safer conditions.

Command Objective

COBRA facilitated faster and More effective operational attack under significantly improved operational conditions:

Outcome

Less Risk to firefighting personnel and remaining building occupancy facilitating more effective operational deployment.

command
Command
  • Cutting extinguisher applied within the context of the Quadrant Model will improve speed of attack and firefighting capability for offensive and internal defensive operations.
  • In effect, it provides commanders with the tactical option of an effective offensive attack from a defensive position.
  • Traditional offensive compartment firefighting and BA operations will be significantly enhanced due to the speed of offensive cooling prior to opening up the fire compartment.
  • Once embedded into operational response it will enhance confidence and reduce risk, converting “risk aversion” to risk control.
enhanced tactical options
Enhanced tactical options

The introduction of the Cutting Extinguisher as an embedded system into the command decision process creates the opportunity to extend the present two primary modes in the UK into four distinct options within the Quadrant Model.

A significantly improved level of control over the balance of risk and benefit is maintained within the context of a much wider template of deployment options.

Combined with the application

of supportive methods of operational practice. -

Will enhance the safety and efficiency of firefighting operations.
