COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course will examine the history of America’s residential fire problem and the NFPA standards that have been developed to help reduce life loss from fire in residential occupancies. Topics covered in this course include the origins and development of NFPA standards for residential fire protection systems, a review of reports from the United States Fire Administration concerning data on residential fires, videos of side by side burns conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of residential fire sprinklers, general requirements of system components including water supply with design and installation criteria, and finally best practices for inspecting, testing and maintaining the systems.

TIMEFRAME:

  • 2 periods of 50 minutes with a 10-minute break between each, classroom setting.
  • 1 period of 60 minutes, outdoors hands on training.

START: 0900
FINISH: 1200
