Teaching the Science of Firefighting
Track: Instructor Development Conference
Session Number: 36
Date: Fri, Sep 28th, 2018
Time: 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Firefighting is a very hands on activity, so it makes sense that teaching fire dynamics to firefighters should include hands on activities. UL FSRI has developed a fire dynamics boot camp for fire service instructors. The objective of the boot camp is to share information and experiments that instructors can use to effectively teach essential fire behavior concepts and how they apply to the fire ground. This presentation will provide an overview of the topics and experiments included in the boot camp.
