Brotherhood Instructors, LLC on Making Safe Roof Ventilation Cuts in Flat Roofs

Firefighting Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesOur partners at Brotherhood Instructors, LLC produced this video on how to make safe roof ventilation cuts – specifically “7-9-8 ventilation cuts” – in flat roofs. Here’s what they have to say about this video:

The 7-9-8 Ventilation cut provides a preset plan for conducting a cut. Far too often when members cut a roof, they “make each cut up as they go”. This cut will provide a plan-of-attack for each flat-roof that is opened. The design of this cut, and the steps that each cut is performed inherently keeps the firefighter from stepping inside the cut segments, thus increasing safety.
