They live among us. Compulsive hoarders. A compulsive hoarder collects and keeps a lot of items, even things that appear useless or of little value to most people. These items clutter the living spaces and can prohibit people from using their rooms.
This environment becomes responder’s nightmare when a fire, medical emergency or other critical incident requires entry into these spaces. An on-going risk assessment is a priority for the safety and welfare of first responders as well as other who may be inside the structure.
Following an in-depth classroom presentation and interactive discussion and a review of case studies, students will participate in several interactive simulation exercises to prepare for a hoarder’s incident.
This can be presented as a 1-2 day program.
