Fight the Fire, Not the Building

Wednesday, April 26
Commercial buildings present many challenges during a firefight, but knowing what they have to offer will make your job easier and safer. This class will review the built-in active and passive fire protection systems that make up the building's fire and life safety system and the basic working of these systems. Students will be able to return home and examine buildings and target hazards in their first-due response district and make changes to strategy and tactics, prefire plans, and battle plans. Firefighter safety is emphasized.
