September 2, 2020

On this episode:
On June 22, 2020, a fire started on the roof of the Applied Technology Building at the Salt Lake Community College Taylorsville campus. Initial reports came in of heavy smoke coming from the roof at around 5:20 pm. Crews immediately struck a 2nd alarm, asking for more resources due to the size and complexity of the incident. This fire presented unique challenges with building construction and wind. We break down these challenges with those who first arrived and identify some important lessons learned with a couple of our chief officers.
