Program Abstract
The initial decisions the fire officer makes and the actions of the crew he/she directs profoundly affect everything that happens later and often determine the outcome of the call.

This self-paced program describes the key initial actions the fire crew arriving at a property with an automatic sprinkler system activation must take to assess the situation, control the operation of the sprinkler system, and departing the scene confident that the building owner can oversee the system's return to service.
