Fire Behavior and Thermal Imaging: The Basics

Monday, April 15
Precon Workshop
Fire Behavior

Sports teams study their opponents more than we study an enemy that can kill us. Fire behavior has changed over time, and we need to keep up with the science. Thermal imaging is a tool used with limited education. The sales team reviews how to turn it on, change the batteries, and use the settings. If you were handed any tool with no training, you would not be comfortable with that tool. Why do we do that with a thermal imaging camera? This class will combine two topics in the service that need to be discussed more than they are: fire behavior and thermal imaging.
