Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training



This is a great video of wood trusses in fire conditions versus dimensional, stick-built lumber under fire conditions.

We all know about the hazards associated with wood truss roof systems, but it is worth looking at again, and again and again.

Training and recognition are key in keeping ourselves and our crews safe.

Check it out and pass on to others, it really is a cool video.

Good post Jason, really brings to life how dramatic the differences are when it comes to how fire attacks truss construction versus (Old) standard wood joist/rafter construction. We can't use 1960's tactics on modern fires in lightweight construction, it's a recipe for disaster.

Stay safe!
Jason, this shows us why an educated/street smart officer, makes for an educated/street smart company! Never stop learning to keep our members safe!
Thanks for the great replies. Stay safe out there.
