Firefighter Building Construction Training

Firefighting Building Construction Training

Firefighters should know the basics of building construction. By first glance or by a full size-up, they should be able to tell what type of building construction they are faced with in any instance. The type of construction can completely alter the method in which a fire is fought.
FETN's Firefighting Building Construction training takes an in-depth look at type 1 through type 5 constructions and how to fight them. Predicting the pitfalls of different types of building construction before they happen can save lives and prevent serious injuries to firefighters and victims.
