During a Live Fire Training Class given at the Fort Buchanan Fire Department training facility, participants observed the changing conditions, and the fire dynamics of ordinary combustible when heated. A 2' x 2' wooden box with a access way, and a vertical access (simulating a wood frame building) with a little hey, some paper and scrap wood inside of it was ignited to demonstrate the following: the first few phases of fire, pyrolysis process, stratification, some rollover, flashover, and a small production of backdraft, and the effect of vertical ventilation. Everybody was amaze to distinguish most of the objectives (especially the small explosion at the end) during the session, and appreciated the visual effects this little inexpensive wooden prop put out for all of the participants; Off course, all of the safety precautions were taken to prevent injuries: all of the participants were about 10 feet away from the prop, two extinguishers, and a fire truck were on stand by, and the prop it self was constructed very sturdy (I made it).<br /> I hope that this session will give a different perspective to each of the fire fighter present that day when responding to any structural fires in their districts.<br /> Training Officer's, Assistant Chief for Training, coordinators, remember that our mission is to demonstrate new skills to our peers, not to hurt them. Please use all available tools to teach safely the new generation of fire fighters how to take care of each other on the fireground.<br /> <br /> Be safe.

During this session members from different firefighting organizations in Puerto Rico convened to fulfill their annual live fire training requirements. The temperatures inside the box ranged from 300 to a top 675 degrees Fahrenheit; Sorry for the video shots; it is hard to conduct the session &amp; take the video simultaneously; will get better the next time. Members were able to experience fire behavior (3 phases out of 5) in its essence, and the benefits of conducting a coordinated ventilation / fire suppression effort.

During this evolutions members from Fort Buchanan Fire Department, Metro Emergency Response Team, Cataño Office of Emergency Management, and the Puerto Rico Army National Guard fire fighters were exposed to 586 degree Fahrenheit inside a class “A” burner built by American Fire Training Systems. The session presented a not so common part of firefighting in which each and one of the members experienced in real live fire dynamics and the phases of a fire (incipient, growth, fully development, and decay), the benefits of application of negative ventilation or ventilation controlled fires, fire suppression patterns, and procedures outlined by NFPA 1403 for live fire training. The outcome: a great experience.<br /> <br /> The Staff: Lead Instructor: Hector Rivera, Exterior Officer: Winfrid Melendez, Monitoring Officer: Phillip Orlinski, Safety Officer: E. Pinero.

This method will give the means for the rescuer to rappel down to the objective, and when the mission is accomplished to pull the rope from the bottom.

The 156th Fire fighters were able to test the Air Force newest firefighting tool, the Rapid Intervention Vehicle P-34; this new vehicle has a capacity of 500 gl. of firefighting aggregate, two 200 feet hose reels, and a joystick operated bumper turret. Overall, this training session was a great opportunity for us to train with the Air Force newest tool, and a chance to become proficient on the job.
