Today's structure fires are more dangerous than ever before. Lightweight construction, low-mass synthetics, and open space floorplans have created a perfect storm for rapid, prolific fire growth and extreme behavior. It is imperative for firefighters of all ranks and experience levels to be prepared for this battle. Through the extensive use of actual fireground videos, attendees will develop and/or refine their knowledge to become intellectually aggressive firefighters. The Next Generation of Reading Smoke brings new research, a new library of videos, and discussion on cancer prevention, tactics and strategies to blend today's extinguishment and safety cultures into one cohesive unit.
