Recognizing and Preventing the Flashover

This is a two-day class designed to demonstrate to firefighters the phenomenon of “flashover”. This dangerous and deadly condition can be predicted with the correct training. The class begins Friday evening with a classroom session which explains flashover signs and signals. This session lasts approximately two hours.

Following the classroom session, on Saturday students will enter the flashover chamber where they will be exposed to several actual flashover conditions in a controlled environment. Students will learn how to anticipate flashover by carefully observing conditions. Students will be taught techniques to control the flashover situation.  This is a hands-on class in which the students will be subjected to high heat conditions and hostile fire conditions.  Each student must bring their own self-contained breathing apparatus with spare cylinder, and turnout gear to include the following: • SCBA • Bunker pants • Bunker coat • Protective hood • Approved gloves •  Limit of 20 students.

Cost of the course is $100 per student.
