Week 4 Essay
Over the last three decades, dramatic changes have occurred in the fire environment. Some of these changes include, but are not limited to, larger homes on smaller lots, lightweight construction and increased synthetic furnishings. Fire research has shown us that much of what we were taught about fire dynamics has been significantly altered by these changes and that some of what we were taught about fire attack tactics is no longer appropriate or safe. Simply put, the “Traditional” ways we have been fighting fires does not keep pace with today’s fire dynamics.
