Art of Reading Buildings - Dave Dodson


The Upper Perkiomen Emergency Service Association is proud to host The Art of Reading Buildings, presented by Dave Dodson on November 5, 2016.  

Tired of the usual, boring building construction classes?  We know it's an important topic - yet find the classes difficult to choke down.  Well, this class takes a whole new approach that is designed to provide essential tools and practice in making rapid street-reads on buildings.  Dave Dodson and John Mittendorf (retired BC, Los Angeles City Fire, CA) have collaborated in developing this day-long, practical classroom session that should be mandatory for all firefighters.

Course Cost:  $40.00 per person

Course Date / Time:  November 5th, 2016 - 8AM to 4PM

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