Building construction (HELP!?)

I've started firefighter II classes and I seem to be doing pretty well. However, one concept I'm having a little trouble grasping is building construction or, more precisely, the types of building construction. (I-V) I know the names, but I have trouble looking at a building and saying "Oh that's a type ___ construction." does anyone have any tips on identifying them? Any flyers, websites, or training materials on the subject? I've read the chapter in the book several times and I just cannot…See More

"At my old department we had a presenter come in and do a building construction training for us. He used pictures of buildings from our district and talked us through the types of construction. You could do a similar self training. Go around your…"

Is it just me?

Is it just me or do some people not take this job seriously enough?



I am by no means an old hand at this job, but it seems that lately incoming firefighters don't quite seem to realize that our profession is, in fact, a dangerous one. I get that many people join the department for the camaraderie, evenings spent around the bar telling stories, or just to be able to tell a girl in a bar, "hey, I'm a fireman."

New Blog

Posted on January 27, 2009 at 2:20am 0 Comments

So I've started a new blog on a different site. This isn't a "please read my blog" attempt, but if anyone is terribly interested in the goings on of my life, they can read it there. It's called "Hydraulic Ventilation" and has nothing to do with firefighting. If anything terribly important happens regarding firefighting, rest assured, I will probably post it here.

Frankly I am not a fan… Continue
