Building Construction for Today's Fire Service
Time & Location
About the Event
This course is designed to help firefighters recognize and understand building construction as it pertains to the critical time factors and decisions made on today’s fireground. It helps firefighters have a general understanding of conventional building and roof construction and new construction methods and materials. The intent is to have firefighters look at a structure differently than they did at the start of the class enabling them to make good decisions based on the characteristics of the known building construction. This will allow them to recognize building characteristics that helps them and/or hurts them, thereby providing for a “safer” fireground.
