BATTALION TRAINING OFFICERS – TRAINING DAY
Recently, our Battalion Training Officers (BTOs) sharpened their firefighting skills during live fire burn training at our East County Training Center. Utilizing flashover containers, these BTOs had the opportunity to witness firsthand the fire behavior leading up to an actual flashover in a controlled, safe environment. Flashovers continue to be one of the leading causes of firefighter deaths. Through these innovative training tools, our firefighters will know the signs of a flashover as well as nozzle techniques to possibly give them time to escape should one occur.
