Fires today are burning faster, hotter, and are more dangerous than ever before. The simple acts of breaking a window or forcing open a door can immediately impact fire growth and make interior conditions untenable. When confronted with incidents when law enforcement arrives ahead of the fire department,your safety could be compromised quickly due to modern fuels and changes in building construction. Police officers on patrol in their communities are in the best position to limit the oxygen available to fires inside compartments like residential and commercial structures. It makes sense to instruct them on how to control the flow path during a search or when locating the fire and, in turn, limiting the extent of the fire and protect any occupants prior to the fire department arrival. This class is appropriate for law enforcement professionals as well as fire service professionals who are looking for resources to improve fireground safety.
