Chief of Training Command Institute [DC|NY] Center for Fireground Leadership Liverpool, New York, United States
Today’s fireground, buildings and occupancies present increasing challenges for Fire Officeres that have redefined strategic and tactical fireground operations and impact these operations on a wide variety of levels that often include adverse compartment fire conditions, structural compromise, collapse and predicable building performance. Presenting key insights on building construction for today’s fire service, the objective of this program is to increase awareness and understandings and promote new skill sets in the fundamentals of building construction, architecture, engineering and design that directly impact firefighting and command operations at structure fires.
To provide training to Command, Company Officers and Firefighters through insights on operational considerations for emerging trends related to Legacy and Emerging Building Construction design,
Provide OPS insights in BLDG Construction Systems,Occupancy Risks,Collapse & Compromise, Methods & Materials,Design,Fire Dynamics;process & methodologies for Reading the Building,Occupancy Profiling
Identify Bldg Vintage, Era, Anatomy and Performance criteria that can be used in risk assessment, tactical and command determination and reading the building considerations
Identify and review various architectural and design features common to key occupancies and their strategic and tactical implications features and predictable performance characteristics.
Provide a model approach to the study of Bldg Construction, Structural Anatomy and Bldg Performance, Bldg. FACTS model for the study of & application of tactical & command operations on the fireground
