    Default Training building

    If you were to have a 2 story construction building, do be used for FD OPS, training, etc, what would you have in it? Other then live burns. Almost anythign will go, I just need some ideas, as I am looking into this.

    Default Training Building

    Go to www.firetrain.com and click on the link at the top left that says HTL pictures and look at Berks Countys training tower, that is the biggest training building I have ever seen. I would also say use hay and pallets dont use LP to fuel your fires. There is a big difference in real smoke and a smoke machine.

    A sprinkler connection with a few heads installed. This will let you practice sprinkler connections as well as using wedges to shut off a head.

    A standpipe system with FD connections on all floors.

    Put a hole in the roof (4x4) and cover with a sheet of plywood and shingles. Let the fire fighters actually cut the roof. A metal bracket on the bottom and sides holds the plywood in place and makes for an easy changeout. This type of ventilation simulator can also be built at ground level.

    Build a wall of 2x4's, 16 inch on center, but not covered with sheetrock. Use as part of the maze for reduced profile training.

    If the building has a peaked roof, designate a spot for the roof for roof ladder use and roll out extra roofing paper. This will extend the life of your roof.
