A select panel of distinguished fire service educators has updated the renowned Bread and Butter fireground training video series.
Building on the vast knowledge of the first edition, the new updated DVDs expand on and illustrate many of the basic skills critical to successful fireground operations. The new DVDs — with all new video and graphics — were designed specifically to demonstrate how to properly accomplish these tasks and to illustrate their effect on the fireground.
In Ventilation, Firefighter Joe Alvarez looks at the basic characteristics of smoke and heat, and shows how to use those characteristics to properly vent a fire.
He looks at both horizontal and vertical ventilation, the two primary ways to vent a fire using natural ventilation. Alvarez discusses the various types of roofs, the team that performs the ventilation, when to ventilate, and more.
