Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

One key to a successful fire attack is to get a quick knock on a fire. In many cases this must be accomplished in a short period of time with limited personnel. “Quick Hit Training” works on the same premise. With limited time and manpower in mind we are providing short training segments that can viewed by an individual or a group of emergency response providers. These training modules will concentrate on skills and knowledge that are important for both new and seasoned responders. Each module is ideal for new or review training. We hope you can fit this method of “Quick Hit Training” in your daily training schedule.

This segment of “Quick Hit” training addresses Light Weight Building Construction. Studies have shown that light weight construction components exposed to fire are at risk to failure with little or no notice. This Quick-Hit Training includes: Awareness Level Training for Modern Wood Components, IFSI Floor Tests, Street Smart Modern Construction Considerations for Firefighters and a new fire test burns completed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the Chicago Fire Department showing how loading under fire conditions effects light weight construction.

This is important training that could prevent injury or loss of life to all firefighters.
