Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP)CEF009Forcible Entry
Whether through a window, door or wall; using a cutting, prying, or striking tool; forcible entry is more than just kicking in a door.  Sometimes we conduct forcible while inflicting the least amount of damage possible, other times forcible entry involves creating large openings in the entire structure.  To achieve the best outcome based on the situation the firefighter must have a working knowledge of tool selection, forcible entry techniques, and an understanding of property features.  Failure to understand the principles of forcible entry can cause unnecessary damage to facilities resulting in loss of public trust all the way to firefighters being injured by inappropriate techniques.  Forcible entry is accomplished to not only gain access to a property, but also ensures firefighters can egress a property if conditions or tactics change.  This course offers an interactive practice session and a module quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting 7th edition.  This course satisfies: NFPA 1001 4.3.4, 4.3.9, 4.3.11, 4.5.1       Show less

Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP)CEF011Tactical Ventilation
Ventilation is the systematic removal of super-heated gases and product of combustion.  This coordinated process replaces these products of combustion with cooler air and lifts toxic gases making a more viable environment for firefighters and victims.  However, when improperly applied it can result in extreme fire growth and rapidly deteriorating conditions.  In order for ventilation to be effective flow path effects, and all safety considerations should be strictly understood.  The type of ventilation should be strategy selected based off of conditions present and knowledge of ventilation types.  Many line of duty death contributing factors have been attributed to the effects from ventilation at the fire scene.  Although a very effective tactic, firefighters must be sure that they have a thorough knowledge of the process and the effects it will have.  This course offers 4 CE hours covering reasons for tactical ventilation, considerations affecting ventilation decisions, types of tactical ventilation, and how building systems effect tactical ventilation.  This course offers an interactive practice session and a module quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting 7th edition.  This course satisfies: NFPA 1001 4.3.11, 4.3.12, 4.5.1 Show less

Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP)CEF016Building Materials, Structural Collapse, and Effects of Fire Suppression
Modern fires are burning hotter and faster than ever before, leading to extreme fire conditions that result in structural collapse. This is attributed to the modern day “lightweight construction.” Over time building materials transitioned from masonry, to heavy timber and true dimensional lumber, to our modern day laminated “lightweight” materials. Every year firefighters are dying in the line of duty due to structural collapses, sometimes even after the fire is out. We must remain aware that the fire is not the only factor that stresses our structures, our suppression efforts have an effect on the structure’s integrity as well.This course offers 4 CE hours covering building materials themselves and how those materials can affect fire ground operations.

Personal Protective Equipment principles for Hazardous Materials PPE are no different than the principles of Structural Firefighting PPE.  The immediate need of any responder is understanding the level of protection needed to safely manage hazards and mitigate an incident.  At a hazardous materials incident, over protection can be just as, if not more, dangerous than under protection.  Knowing the different respiratory protection and protective ensembles gives the responder the knowledge to predict ensemble limitations as well as user limitations.  Once the determination of PPE has been made the responder can effectively mitigate the emergency using spill and leak control measures learned at the Operations level.  Once the incident has been mitigated a decontamination process reduces the chances of secondary contamination.  The Operations level responder must also be able to differentiate, set up, and work in different types of decontamination corridors.  This course offers 4 CE hours covering personal protective equipment, product control, gross and emergency decontamination.  This course offers an interactive practice session and quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting, 7th Edition Manual.
