This class is for any department that has buildings with large footprints in their response district. Home Depot and Wal-Mart are examples of big box stores that will benefit from a rope based search technique. Churches and schools can also fit the category for large area search methods. This drill will be used with only ropes and verbal communication; students will not be aided with a thermal imaging device. Members will be shown from one to four search positions that can be utilized depending on staffing available- lead firefighter with the rope bag, two sweep firefighters and the officer.
