Project #94688 - FIR 2302, Principles of Fire and Emergency Services Safety and Survival

Looking to have all the case studies below completed.

 

Case Studies

An effective method for learning about fire and emergency services safety and survival is to review and analyze case studies. Case study assignments give students the opportunity to relate concepts to practical situations. Case studies also require students to use analytical and problem solving skills to examine what has happened and why it has happened. A case study is not just the recount of the issues and problems; it is also the detailing of solutions and recommendations to fix the problems. This is where you demonstrate your knowledge of the theory in your course and your ability to relate it to practical situations.

Instructions for Case Studies II, III, and VI

In your responses, please identify the following:

  • ï‚·  Major issues: Identify the major problems including their causes in this section, so you can identify appropriate

    solutions later.

  • ï‚·  Potential solutions: This section evaluates potential solutions for the identified key problems. Often there is

    more than one solution, so it is useful to evaluate each solution in terms of its advantages and disadvantages.

    This will also assist in determining your recommendations.

  • ï‚·  Recommendations: This section should outline your recommendations based upon the given solutions for each

    of the identified problems.

    Your assignment should meet the following guidelines:

  • ï‚·  A minimum of 400 words

  • ï‚·  Formatted using APA Style

  • ï‚·  Use your own words and include citations for other articles as needed to avoid plagiarism.

    Unit II Case Study

    The Scenario:

    Several companies were working at a structure fire in an abandoned building on a summer morning. Although fire on the main floor had been suppressed, there was still active fire in the attic. As one of the crews was beginning to pull the ceiling down to get to the fire, the building collapsed, trapping six firefighters from different crews. Even with the poor visibility, nobody called a mayday. Regretfully, all of the firefighters did not make it out.

Unit III Case Study

The Scenario:

Two firefighters were en route to a preplan, standing on top of the turntable (ladder truck). As the company approached a railroad bridge, both had to duck to avoid the top of the bridge. Although an engine company crew following directly behind the ladder witnessed the behavior they decided to take no action. However, an off-duty firefighter was driving on the same street and happened to pass by as these firefighters had to duck down. He called the fire chief to report the problem. The fire department had a written SOG/SOP requiring all personnel to ride in the cab and wear seat belts whenever the engine was in motion. Every member working that day failed to take any action and speak up conveying any concerns despite witnessing the improper behavior.

Unit VI Case Study

The Scenario:

During shift change, a spare composite SCBA bottle came out of the compartment and hit the floor. The main valve assembly of the tank broke off completely sending the bottle off across the floor spinning and it hit another firefighter, severely injuring him. It eventually wedged itself against a vehicle's tires until the air finished spewing out. Upon investigation, it was discovered that the cylinder involved was actually a 2216 psi cylinder. This cylinder is carbon wrapped and looks almost identical to the fire department's 3000 psi cylinders. At some point prior to this incident, the cylinder had been filled to 3000 psi, which did not leave much room for pressure fluctuations. The burst disc for the 2216 psi cylinders was set at 3360 psi. It was quite obvious that the disc had, indeed, burst.

Unit VIII Case Study

In previous units you were given a scenario and asked to demonstrate your knowledge of the concepts in this course and your ability to relate the concepts to practical situations. For your final Case Study you will need to locate your own fire and emergency services scenario and relate at least one of the Unit VIII concepts to a practical situation.

The scenario you choose to use will need to relate to one of the following:

  • ï‚·  The importance of public education as a critical component of life safety programs.

  • ï‚·  The importance of fire sprinklers and code enforcement.

  • ï‚·  The importance of safety in the design of apparatus and equipment.

    Below are resources for locating fire and emergency services reports:

  • ï‚·  NIOSH Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program

  • ï‚·  National Fire Incident Reporting System

    In your response, please identify the following:

  • ï‚·  The Scenario: You can paraphrase the scenario or you may include the entire report in your paper; either way,

    make sure to use proper citation.

  • ï‚·  Major issues: Identify the major problems including their causes in this section, so you can identify appropriate

    solutions later.

  • ï‚·  Potential solutions: This section evaluates potential solutions for the identified key problems. Often there is

    more than one solution, so it is useful to evaluate each solution in terms of its advantages and disadvantages.

    This will also assist in determining your recommendations.

  • ï‚·  Recommendations: This section should outline your recommendations based upon the given solutions for each

    of the identified problems.

  • ï‚·  Reference page in APA format
