Fire Department Connections: Start to Finish
Credit Hours: 1 Viewing Format(s): Interactive Fee: $25.00 Purchase / Take Exam
Faculty: David T. Phelan


This program will give firefighters a better understanding of how to utilize the Fire Department Connection, or FDC, found on various types of buildings. FDCs are often associated with standpipes and sprinklers in structures too tall for standard attack hoselines deployed from the engine. However, they are also found in many communities for use in supporting sprinkler systems in a wide variety of building types. As a result it is important that firefighters understand the role FDCs play in fire suppression operations.

The content for this program was developed by David T. Phelan. David has served with Bergenfield NJ Fire Department for 18 years. He is a certified Fire Officer I, as well as a licensed fire protection and construction official who has worked extensively with various public agencies. As an instructor, David has developed several programs relating to fire protection systems, and teaches fire protection licensing programs at the college level.”
