Extending the 7-9-8 Ventilation Cut by Brotherhood Instructors, LLC

Firefighting Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesA couple of weeks ago, we showcased a video from our partners Brotherhood Instructors, LLC on how to make a safe ventilation cut – specifically, a “7-9-8 ventilation cut” – in flat roofs. This technique gives you plenty of ventilation.

But what if you need even more? What if you need to make your cut bigger? Not to worry. Brotherhood Instructors has the solution in their large YouTube library of training videos.

By the way, you may notice this firefighter rolling his saw on its blade between cuts. This is a power saw safety technique from yet another Brotherhood Instructors training video.

Remember, we’ll be at the FDIC 2013 firefighter conference in Indianapolis, IN from April 25 to 27! Visit us in Booth 9550 at the Lucas Oil Stadium. See our press release for details.

    This is a great extension to the classic 7-9-8 vent hole, and one I plan to file in my head should I ever need to put it to use. I like how you emphasized having the correct tools on the roof with you as well as stressing safety while operating the K-12. Thanks for sharing.
