Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I've drawn up some plans for the floor collapse prop our training division used. See the uploaded file. Let me know if you have any questions. PS- We plan on submitting an article to Fire Engineering which we will get into the entire drill in deeper detail. I hope to have photos of this prop uploaded tomorrow or at least by the end of the week. Floor Collapse Prop Detail.pdf

Pictures are now up. They help to understand the drawing a little better as we incorporated the prop into a stairwell. See the photo album for pics and let me know if you have any questions.
