Live Burn in Vienna, August 17, 2013

This morning, field training staff of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Academy conducted live fire training for the volunteer fire fighters in the county. I was lucky to be able to participate.

Training was about fire behavior, using real fire in an acquired structure, and carefully controlled ventilation to show how common fire department tactics, such as breaking windows or opening doors, can significantly impact the size and growth rate of fire, heat production in the burning building etc.
