About Our Classes
Flash Fire Industries offers custom classes based around Forcible Entry, Saw operations, Truck Company Operations, Bailout, Safety & Survival, RIT, and Confined Space. Based on past classes, and demand, we have also put together a number of ideas of classes below. However, EVERYTHING is customizable to meet your department's wants and needs.
Basic Forcible Entry - Evening Drill
Designed around a night of forcible entry. This is a 2-3 hour drill evening that accommodates up to 16 students. It consists of inward and outward forcible entry. Inward opening is held on the trailer using REAL doors, and outward forcible entry is held on our standalone forcible entry drill. Through the Lock or Metal cutting operations can be added. This would allow up to 24 students.
Truck Company Operations - Evening drill
This is a great “back to basics” truck company operations night. This is a great drill for skills of all levels, and brings students back to the “basics” of truck company operations. It focuses on some of the most used “truckie” skills. Forcible entry and roof ventilation is performed on the trailer. This can accommodate up to 16 students. Outward FE, Through the Lock, or another skill can be added to bring the student number up to 24.
THE Forcible Entry Class - 8 Hour
This is where it all started. We pull out all the stops with the trailer, our forcible entry door, all of our saw operation props, and our through-the-lock props. The class begins with a 2 hour powerpoint, and then heads out for four hands - on stations consisting of inward opening, outward opening, saw operations, and through-the-lock. If you are interested in this class, ask us for the full class description! All consumables and four instructors are included. Can accommodate 32 students.
The Ins and Outs of VES - Full Day or Multiple Evening Sessions
VES? Check. Can confidence? Check. Search? Check. Don't be fooled, this is not a "check the box" class. We cover how to VES, why to VES, and when to VES. You will leave this class with an understanding both of why VESis an important tactic, and how to implement it on the fireground. Can accommodate 24 students.

Flashover And The Modern Fire Environment - Available in One Day or Two Evening Sessions
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! Can accommodate 24 students. Additional burns available for more than 24 students.
