This program reviews fire behavior and structural collapse hazards during basement fires. Full-scale fire research conducted by the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Chicago Fire Department, and the Fire Department of New York highlight the rapidly changing fire dynamics and structural performance differences of dimensional lumber and lightweight construction. Analysis of fireground incidents is combined with research findings to provide recommendations on fire suppression tactics and strategies. The class also includes the latest Web-based multimedia training programs designed to encourage the incorporation of the program content into individual department training programs, tactical decision-making models, and standard operating procedures.
