Today’s fireground, buildings and occupancies present increasing challenges that have redefined strategic and tactical fireground operations and impact these operations on a wide variety of levels that often include adverse compartment fire conditions, structural compromise, collapse and predicable building performance. Presenting insights on building construction for today’s fire service, the primary objective of this program is to increase awareness and understandings of a model approach to building construction, architecture, engineering and design that directly impact firefighting and command operations at structure fires. A discussion on the correlation of Building Construction Systems, Occupancy Risks, Collapse & Compromise Characteristics, Methods & Materials, Design and Fire Dynamics related to building anatomy will be presented.
