    How long is too long for a training day at the burn house?

    When we used to do house burns it was an all day thing. Last one I went too was a whole weekend. As lomg as you take proper breaks, I dont see an issue.

    In my opinion, I would have to say that there is really no time limit, but that depends on what you are doing. If you have a burn house, instead of doing everything on one weekend, you could train on multiple dates.

    That would be state-regulated matter.

    We do need a burn-permit and air quality is a major part of that (no asphalt shingles, etc).

    How long is too long for a training day at the burn house

    As to the main question, I'm not sure there's an exact answer...but I think it's how intense you're going/how good your rehab/how good your physical shape to begin with.

    Best class I ever took we were only using three bottles a day (what's that, less then an hour's actual heavy duty work out of 7-1/2 hour class?). You don't realize how much time it sucks up preparing & cleaning up after evolutions, plus time you were on the standby crews outside (not actively participating). Still we where beat by the end of the day, and that was on an overcast day.
