Ventilation Training

During a fire, heat and smoke will rise making it very dangerous for firefighters to enter a building. Heat and fire trapped in an attic or a ceiling structure can cause a collapse or a flashfire. There are several ways in which firefighters help release that heat and smoke from inside a building. Shown below is just one of the methods used by firefighters.
