We will discuss in depth the purpose and various types of ventilation on residential & light commercial structures as well as the Do’s & Don’ts of positive pressure ventilation.
We will also discuss the critical importance of building construction as it relates to ventilation and how it has become forsaken all too often. Handouts will be provided and you are encouraged to review basic building construction prior to this class. The hands-on portion will take place on a new state-of-the-art portable roof simulator prop. This will allow the student to use proven vertical ventilation techniques with the use of chain saws, rubbish hooks & roof ladders for optimal safety during vertical ventilation. The pitch of the roof is able to move from steep to flat allowing each student to practice these techniques as well as the importance of teamwork and communication. There will also be a saw handling and safety section to improve chain saw proficiency and confidence as well as the ability to “feel” the rafters.
