The Art of Reading Smoke: The Next Generation

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Strategy & Tactics

The Art of Reading Smoke curriculum is a must for anyone looking to master the craft of firefighting. First-in video and a dynamic teaching style help you develop the ability to see the volume, velocity, density, and color of smoke to answer three questions: Where is the fire? How big is it? How fast will the fire develop? Reading Smoke improves tactical decision making and enhances your ability to predict fire behavior. Whether choosing a tactic at the command level or performing that tactic at the company level, learn to read what the smoke is telling you for quick and accurate decision making.
