Flashover and the Modern Fire Environment

Flashover and the Modern Fire Environment


In partnership with the Litchfield County Fire School, Flash Fire and CT Custom Fire are running an open enrollment signature Flashover and the Modern Fire Environment course. 

Flashover and the Modern Fire Environment. This isn't just about flashover and the modern fire curve. We delve into 7 statements that have controversy surrounding them. Are they true?Are they false?Take the class and find out. Best of all, we demonstrate nearly every one of them in a live fire environment.

Fact or Fiction? 1) Fires Burn Hotter Today 2) You will be able to recognize the signs of an impending flashover 3) We should not ventilate 4) Backdrafts are common 5) You can push fire 6) A flashover is not survivable 7) A TIC will warn you of impending flashover

After the classroom, students are rotated through live burns that demonstrate each and every aspect of the classroom under real conditions including: Fire Growth, Vent Limited Fires, rapidly expanding fires when oxygen is introduced, proper and improper horizontal and vertical ventilation, rollover, flashover, CAN use, and much more! Thermal Imaging cameras are encouraged to be used as well! 

I understand that I must be FF1, and bring my own full PPE, SCBA, and spare cylinder. Thermal Imaging Cameras are encouraged.
