District Familiarization & Pre-Planning

District Familiarization & Pre-Planning
Q-Decking & Metal Bar-joist Trusses are not just found in commercial buildings. This residential structure has truss construction with metal Q-decking that is usually found on the roof of Type 2 Non & Limited Combustible Constructed Building. This is the floor to a residential garage which is part of a house that is being constructed. There are hidden dangers lurking. It is important to know your response areas. If this was not discovered during construction only the contractor and homeowner would know of the metal bar joist trusses that exist.

Fire Behavior Training

When was the last time you actively participated in a Fire Behavior Class? The other night I was on the other side of the podium. I attended Mike Daley & John Dixon's Max Fire Box Lecture and Fire Behavior demonstration. It is always interesting to watch a fires progression, but its even better to have the WHY explained and HOW we can effectively and efficiently interact with fire condition that is presenting to us. Make the opportunity to bring these two excellent instructors to your next training class. You will not be disappointed.
STAY SAFE
John
