Modern homes are burning faster, their contents burning hotter. Are you prepared to do a good size-up to determine your attack? This class will look as some basic principles of a size-up, including reading smoke, modern construction, and fuel loads. Students will be able to review home construction techniques/ materials through small props. This class is intended to prompt discussions and give the student opportunities to look at situations and determine what actions they will need to take. The class will look at some case studies, including accident investigations and NIOSH reports, to learn from the lessons others have given us.
