LLIS Lesson Learned: High Rise Fire Operations: Hooking Up to the Standpipe on the Floor Below   [open pdf - 54KB]

"When operating at fires in high-rise buildings, firefighters should ensure that they connect their attack lines to the standpipe outlet on the floor below the fire. Connecting to the standpipe outlet on the fire floor may unnecessarily subject firefighters to intense heat and smoke conditions, thus compromising the safety of personnel and resulting in a delay of securing a water source for fire suppression."
