Often, smoke issuing from a building is the only clue available to predict fire behavior and the likelihood of a flashover or rapid fire spread.
In this companion to The Art of Reading Smoke, Dave Dodson presents seven real-world scenarios involving residential, commercial, and mixed-use scenarios to help hone your smoke-reading skills. Using the process taught in the original DVD, you are given the opportunity to read the incident, then instructor Dodson walks you through the scenario. The “reading smoke” process is an invaluable skill for any firefighter, from the probie on up.
