Course Description:
Senior Fire Officer Forum: Surviving The Insult Presented By: William Greenwood Making educated decisions in today's hostile fire environment is critical for firefighter health and safety. In this class, we will discuss UL and NIST's recent fire dynamics studies, take in depth look at thermal imager interpretation for greater decision making capabilities and take a strong look at how our PPE provides protection from thermal insult. Through a working relationship with PPE manufacturers, we will look at damaged turnout gear that suffered heat insult. This class will provide the attendee with a good understanding of modern fire dynamics, flow path considerations, and provide information on why today's firefighters are experiencing bad things during rapid fire growth. Using our proven (5) step situational awareness model called "Interior Benchmarking" we will show your firefighters how to better benchmark the interior conditions as they operate on the inside with 5(easy to remember) questions: What do I see? What do I hear? What do I feel? Where exactly am I? and How long did it take to get here? The interior benchmarking model provides the user with information to be compared throughout the operation and thus make educated decisions on "Go and No Go" tactics.
