The objective of the live fire structure is to extinguish live-fire scenarios and to instruct the firefighter in proper tactical techniques of rescue, attack, ventilation and safety under live-fire conditions. This prop enhances the tactical skills of various tactical teams through the application of strong leadership and command techniques.
The two-storey live fire structure is a metal structure designed to burn Class "A" combustible materials. The building has six movable interior doors that can be rearranged to change the floor plan. A set of outside stairs to the roof has a working platform where vertical ventilation can be simulated through a designated hatch. This structure is also designed to accommodate confined space and rope rescues from the working platform on top of the building. The upper and lower platforms and roof are accessed by means of three different types of stairs. Ground ladders and the aerial apparatus are requested, at times, to simulate roof access.
