This week the training tower has had more wall studs added and the roof ventilation simulator has also been framed out. The ventilation simulator is the pitched portion of the top of the building. When finished this portion of the tower will allow fire fighters to perform ventilation on both composite shingle and metal roofs. This is done by cutting holes in the roof to allow heat and smoke to escape the structure in an actual fire, doing this cools the environment inside the structure and improves visibility making it easier to bring a fire under control. This type of training increase the firefighters ability to perform this task as safely and quickly as possible which can save lives and property.
