About the Event

Reading the Smoke reviews the definition and warning signs associated with 5 hostile fire events: Rollover, Backdrafts, Flashover, Smoke Explosion and Building Collapse. The course then transitions to establishing the need to why Incident Commanders should read smoke in today’s structures filled with low mass and high synthetic fuel loads. This course will identify what smoke consists of, the four key attributes of smoke and the process involved with reading smoke. The students will then have the opportunity to practice reading the smoke using actual fire footage.
