LEARNING OBJECTIVES

To identify a potential or actual fire hazard and have the knowledge required to remove any of the elements that support a fire.
Trainees must learn to handle extinguishing agents and apply these agents in the most effective manner while containing or removing the possibility of re- ignition of a fire. The hazards of smoke and smoke characteristics will need to be understood to aid evacuation in smoke filled environments.
