This course is tailored for firefighters around the world who may face the challenge of tackling fires in compartments. By providing a solid foundation in fire behavior, combined with advanced tactics and techniques, it aims to equip firefighters with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage compartment fires. Through a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical application, the course emphasizes the importance of safety, efficiency, and informed decision-making in firefighting operations, making it an essential program for enhancing the capabilities of firefighters globally. 


Who is the course aimed at?

The course is aimed at all firefighters around the world taht need to have a good understanding of compartment fire behaviour.



 The course covers the following:

  • Reading the Fire: A focus on understanding fire dynamics, utilizing the SAHF model for tactical planning, and increasing awareness of Fire Gas Ignition (FGI).
  • Fire Science Fundamentals: Covering the basics of fire, types of combustion, the Fire Triangle, and key concepts such as pyrolysis, flashpoint, firepoint, and spontaneous ignition temperature. This unit explores the chemistry and physics of fire, offering an in-depth understanding of fire behavior.
  • Building Construction and Fire Development: Knowledge of how building construction and materials influence fire development, focusing on the behavior of various fuels, especially in structures, and the impact of modern materials like plastics and textiles on fire growth.
  • Fire Extinguishment Principles: Discussing cooling methods, smothering strategies, and the role of firefighting foams, integrating scientific principles with practical firefighting applications.
  • Tactical Ventilation and Fire Attack: Insights into tactical ventilation techniques, the concept of “Anti-ventilation,” and the practical applications of research findings on firefighting techniques and occupant survival during a fire.
  • Risk Assessment and Tactical Decision Making: Enhancing skills in “reading a fire,” employing the fireground risk assessment model for making informed decisions, and understanding the historical evolution of firefighting tactics.
  • Firefighter Health and Safety: Addressing the impact of firefighting on health, specifically the research conducted on the effects of cancer among firefighters due to exposure to hazardous environments.
