Class Description:

Overall firefighters spend very little time learning about fire. In comparison to time spent on other subjects; however we call ourselves firefighters when we have very limited firsthand experience with fire. Many firefighters like to boast of experience when in reality their actual knowledge of fire behavior is nothing more than just getting lucky! Experience alone is insufficient. We must study fire behavior theory, along with the experience of others in order to survive the modern firefight.

This class will examine modern fire behavior along with an extensive study of modern fire environment and how to protect you from extreme fire behavior. The student will leave with a sound understanding of modern fire environment changes.

This class will also focus on the impact ventilation has on the modern fire environment. Each student will gain a better understanding of how to apply ventilation tactics in relationship to today’s fuels and building construction.

We will also examine what a ventilation controlled fires is and the ability to quickly recognize the signs of a ventilation-limited fire to protect you and your crew from hostile fire events.

Do you know what the fire’s flow path is?  If not we will examine the fire’s flow path  and how it will significantly influence fire spread and life threatening hazards presented to occupants and firefighters. Getting caught in the flow path has, and continues to injure and kill firefighters. Are our decisions and standard operating guidelines placing us in, or greatly changing, the fire’s flow path? What factors, actions and modern ventilation techniques can today’s firefighters use in battling the contemporary fire environment? We must learn to force the building to behave the way we desire through proper ventilation methods.

If you have been in the fire service for more than one years, then  this class is a MUST for you to stay alive in this modern environment!

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the end of this lesson the student shall be able to:

·         Describe how firefighter’s workplace environment has changed concerning structural firefighting in modern buildings.

·         Identify a ventilation controlled fire and how to recognize the indicators.

·         Describe the impact ventilation will have on a ventilation controlled fire.

·         Identify the three methods of heat transfer on fire growth.

·         Identify and describe the characteristics of both bi and un-directional flow paths.

·         Define flammable limits and how smoke burns.

·         Identify the stages of fire growth in modern buildings

·         Define the importance of the location of the fire neutral plane.

·         Describe flashover, backdraft and smoke explosion.

·         Describe the importance of door control and controlling the flow path.

·         Examine recent UL,NIST and other fire science research.

·         Identify safer alternate tactics for basement and attic fires.
