Art of Reading Smoke

Wednesday, September 23, 2015  The Upper Perkiomen Emergency Service Association is proud to host the Art of Reading Smoke, presented by Dave Dodson on December 5, 2015.  

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. First-arriving officers, Incident Commanders, and Safety Officers MUST know how to rapidly read smoke – this class explains the reading-smoke process and gives participants practice using actual fire-ground video.

Course Cost:  $40.00 per person

Course Date / Time:  December 5th, 2015 - 8AM to 4PM

Course Location:  Upper Perkiomen High School, 2 Walt Road, Pennsburg, PA 18073
