Aim:

This course is tailored for firefighters around the world who may face the challenge of tackling fires in compartments. By providing a solid foundation in fire behavior, combined with advanced tactics and techniques, it aims to equip firefighters with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage compartment fires. Through a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical application, the course emphasizes the importance of safety, efficiency, and informed decision-making in firefighting operations, making it an essential program for enhancing the capabilities of firefighters globally.

 Content:

 The course covers the following:

  • Reading the Fire: A focus on understanding fire dynamics, utilizing the SAHF model for tactical planning, and increasing awareness of Fire Gas Ignition (FGI).
  • Fire Science Fundamentals: Covering the basics of fire, types of combustion, the Fire Triangle, and key concepts such as pyrolysis, flashpoint, firepoint, and spontaneous ignition temperature. This unit explores the chemistry and physics of fire, offering an in-depth understanding of fire behavior.
  • Building Construction and Fire Development: Knowledge of how building construction and materials influence fire development, focusing on the behavior of various fuels, especially in structures, and the impact of modern materials like plastics and textiles on fire growth.
  • Fire Extinguishment Principles: Discussing cooling methods, smothering strategies, and the role of firefighting foams, integrating scientific principles with practical firefighting applications.
  • Tactical Ventilation and Fire Attack: Insights into tactical ventilation techniques, the concept of “Anti-ventilation,” and the practical applications of research findings on firefighting techniques and occupant survival during a fire.
  • Risk Assessment and Tactical Decision Making: Enhancing skills in “reading a fire,” employing the fireground risk assessment model for making informed decisions, and understanding the historical evolution of firefighting tactics.
  • Firefighter Health and Safety: Addressing the impact of firefighting on health, specifically the research conducted on the effects of cancer among firefighters due to exposure to hazardous environments.

Aim:

This internationally recognized and certified training course is tailored for Fire Officers from Junior to Senior Officer Rank. It is crucial for those directly involved in the development or delivery of operational firefighter training programs, or those responsible for the development and implementation of realistic training programs and facilities. By completing this course, firefighters will not only improve their operational effectiveness and safety but also gain critical insights into the development of comprehensive training programs that address the complex challenges of compartment fires.

Content:

 The course covers the following:

  • Reading the Fire: This fundamental unit emphasizes the importance of interpreting fire dynamics, utilizing the SAHF (Smoke, Air, Heat, and Flame) model for tactical planning, and increasing awareness around Fire Gas Ignition (FGI), a critical yet often misunderstood phenomenon.
  • Fire Science Fundamentals: Participants will explore the basics of fire, including the types of combustion, the Fire Triangle, and essential concepts such as pyrolysis, flashpoint, and spontaneous ignition temperature. This provides a thorough understanding of the chemistry and physics underlying fire behavior.
  • Building Construction and Fire Development: This section delves into how the construction of a building and the materials used in its design influence fire development, with a special focus on the behavior of various fuels within structures and the impact of modern materials like plastics and textiles on fire growth.
  • Fire Extinguishment Principles: Discusses various methods of extinguishing fires, including cooling techniques, smothering strategies, and the use of firefighting foams. It bridges scientific principles with practical firefighting applications.
  • Tactical Ventilation and Fire Attack: Offers insights into tactical ventilation techniques and the concept of “Anti-ventilation,” alongside practical applications of research findings on firefighting techniques and their impact on occupant survival during a fire.
  • Risk Assessment and Tactical Decision Making: Enhances the ability to “read” a fire, employing the fireground risk assessment model for making informed tactical decisions. It also covers the historical evolution of firefighting tactics to provide a context for modern practices.
  • Firefighter Health and Safety: Addresses the significant impact of firefighting on health, specifically focusing on the research conducted on the prevalence of cancer among firefighters due to their exposure to hazardous environments.

On completion of the course you will have to undergo a final examination in order to receiev a certificate of completion of the theory component of the IFE recognised International Compartment Fire Behviour Training Instructor course level 1.

Reading the Fire - Tactical Decision Making Under Stress

Every fire talks to us through the 4 key fire behavior indicators; smoke, air, heat and flame (SAHF). When read in the context of the building and e

nvironmental factors (BE), the SAHF assessment can greatly assist firefighters to determine the location of the fire, stage of development, and most importantly, the changes that are likely to occur. This skill is essential to ensure the most effective strategy and tactics are employed for each situation we encounter. Underpinning this critical skill, is a sound fundamental understanding of fire dynamics in the modern built environment. The workshop will reveal a firefighter focused view on the ABC's of fire dynamics, and provide insight into the likely modern fire development scenarios.

Supported by online learning management systems. Some theory can be studied and accessed through the LMS.
