One of the least recognized aspects of fire threat is the vehicle fire. Due to recent changes in vehicle design and construction firefighters are forced to change the way vehicle fires are fought. This course will present safe and efficient strategies and tactics to extinguish vehicles fires based upon: vehicle design; operating fuel, construction materials; location; and ignition and coolant systems. Students will participate in live fire evolutions using a vehicle firefighting simulator.
