High-Rises Under Construction
Presented by:
Battalion Chief (Ret.) Gerald Tracy, Fire Department of New York
Fire Marshal (Ret.)/Former Deputy Chief Jack J. Murphy, Leonia (NJ) Fire Department

You can be assured the services of your department will be required at construction sites and projects. This workshop will expound on the intelligence, resources, and rapports required from the construction industry and trades to maintain the life safety of their workers, existing building occupants in those buildings being renovated/altered, and the other emergency services and property preservation prerequisites. The services to be called on are far ranging, fall injuries being the most common. There may be the collapse of structures or scaffolding systems; calamities with heavy equipment, cranes, and excavations; and, of course, fire. All of these events may occur with the lack of or with fire protection system impairments. The disciplines required to enter and operate in these dangerous arenas will be clarified as well as the operational procedures that advocate size-up and operating efficiently and safely.
This presentation is a preview for the forthcoming book from Fire Engineering Books & Video, coauthored with James Murtagh, High Rise Buildings Understanding the Vertical Challenge.
