Students are introduced to the chemistry and behavior of fire in order to develop an understanding of how technology is applied to detect, control and suppress fire today.
This course is part of the Fire Protection Technology core group. It is designed to introduce the student to methods and techniques of building construction and how building construction impacts both fire behavior and the life safety of building occupants. Students are also introduced to the causes of building failures (structural collapse) and the role of interior finish in fire spread and toxic gas production.
This course will introduce the student to various chemical and physical properties of solid, liquid, and gaseous materials that contribute to their potential for fire and explosion. Reactivity and health hazards will also be examined. The student will review basic combustion chemistry and chemical terminology. The student will be introduced to identification systems for hazardous materials, transportation practices, storage practices and fire control strategies for a wide range of flammable and combustible substances.
