This course is designed to increase firefighter
effectiveness and safety by providing a framework for educating and training
firefighters about the current fire dynamics research. This course will
demonstrate how the knowledge of fire dynamics can be directly translated into
strategic fire ground decision-making, and into highly applicable, usable,
real-life fire ground tactics and tasks. The course has hands on activities, as
well as, a small scale live burn simulation of a structure fire.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements.
