Illinois Fire Service Institute



This two-story class A burn structure allows for nine different evolutions to take place at one time. The floors and ceilings are lined with refractory material that protects the prop during continuous use through IFSI's burn season. Commonly called "the taxpayer," this structure represents a mixed occupancy building often encountered by fire departments. Hinged roof vents and a bulk head door on the roof present realistic ventilation challenges.
