Vehicle Fire Fighting

Vehicle Fire Fighting : 1.00-16.00 Hours

Course Description

In this class, students will learn to recognize the hazards associated with newer vehicles such as bumpers, drive shafts, passive restraint detonation systems, and various kinds of fuel systems. Identification of scene safety concerns, engine placement, and recognizing the challenges of compartment forcible entry to affect extinguishment are discussed. The class also covers line selection and operation, assembly, and utilization of a foam stream. Methods to gain entry to engine compartments and trunks for more rapid-fire suppression are also presented. Hands-on evolutions are dependent on available vehicles provided by the class host and permission through the AHJ for live fire evolutions.
