Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Live fire training conducted at Fort Buchanan Training facility; the objective for this session is to prepare fire fighters in understanding how dangerous and challenging are structural fires. 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.

The Staff: Lead Instructor: Hector Rivera, Exterior Officer: Winfrid Melendez, Monitoring Officer: Phillip Orlinski, Safety Officer: E. Pinero.
