Reading Smoke, Buildings, Risks, & Firefighters
Building on the outstanding training programs developed by Dave Dodson, “Reading Smoke” is a class developed by the Fire Dept Safety Officers Assoc for Company Officers, Incident Safety Officers, and Chief Officers where they can learn to take their ability to “Read Smoke” at any emergency response to the next level.
The class will review and emphasize the significance of “Reading Smoke” along with “Reading Buildings” which is directly related. This will include:
- Buildings: Type, Era, Use, Size, Related Hazards and Predicting Collapse
- Smoke: Volume, Velocity, Density, Color, Influencing Factors, and Predicting Fire Behavior
Using the key information gained from reading those 2 critical factors plans can be formulated and actions taken to insure both effective and safe emergency response operations.
