Firefighter Training Drills: Roof Types and Construction

By Forest Reeder

More flashcard drills are featured this week, this set covering roof construction types and methods. A series of building photos representing typical roof construction types along with some key construction components will challenge your firefighters to name the type and to discuss the hazards associated with each type. Some operational and key term questions are included to allow for a well-rounded discussion on roof construction and safe ventilation operations.
