This course will focus on recognition of basement typesand locating fireswithin them. Full classroom participation and discussion is a requirement — this is NOT a three-hour lecture! The student will review fire growth and smoke- reading basics. Raising awareness of building construction types and associated hazards will add to students’ existing body of knowledge. An emphasis on flow path management and high quality, 360-degree building evaluation will be integral to the student experience. This class will utilize existing basement fire footage with classroom tactical discussions and group activities. Students should come away with a greater appreciation for the hazards of basement fires and a greater understanding of proper flow path management.
