The Art of Reading Smoke

Often smoke issuing from a building is the only clue available to predict fire behavior and the likelihood of a flashover or rapid fire spread. First-arriving officers must read smoke before choosing attack tactical priorities. Incident Commanders and Safety Officers must know how to rapidly read smoke in order to keep firefighters within an acceptable risk-profile.

This 6-hour course will be conducted at Masontown VFD, Masontown, West Virginia (Preston County).  Class dates are Wednesday March 20 and Wednesday March 27, 2019 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 PM each evening. Rodney Strait is the instructor.
