FF254 Tactical Considerations at Restaurant Fires
Time & Location
About the Event
Safe and effective firefighting in today’s fire environment requires a complex thought process. Restaurant occupancies feature open flames, hot equipment utilizing flammable cooking oils, cleaning chemical and paper packaging products. These challenges placed with occupancies that are constructed with lightweight trusses that span large areas are prone to early failure from fire impingement. Those lightweight trusses are supporting not only the weight of the roof assembly, but also heavy HVAC units and commercial ventilator fans that service the kitchen.). The goal of this class is to heighten the awareness of the dangers of today’s restaurant occupancies and make better tactical decisions.
