    Default Live Burn

    Can you still preform a live burn as part of a training excersize or is it against the law?

    What type of live burn? Live burns in structures are highly discouraged by the NFPA, particularly after several very nasty incidences (Amsterdam, NY explosion, or the live burn in which a recruit lost his life), they're encouraging the use of burn trailers.

    Yes, but it must follow NFPA 1403 to the letter.
