Fire Behavior: Flashover
This course is designed to review fire dynamics as they
relate to the fire growth/development in structures and
permit students to witness flashover conditions in a
controlled environment so that they can better understand
the key indicators of rapid fire growth/flashover, risk
based decision making and the proper methods to limit the
occurrence of flashover during interior firefighting
The ultimate goal of this training is to increase
firefighter awareness and overall safety. Students will
enter the flashover simulator under live fire conditions.
Compliant structural firefighting gear is required.
