Happy 1st Wednesday of the year! Our members didn’t miss a beat. However, because of the cold icy weather, tonights drill was conducted inside. Lieutenant Scagnelli hosted a fun presentation on Building Construction and it’s importance to firefighters.

Our members need to have a basic understanding of building construction and the associated loads in order to understand how a building may/will react under fire conditions. This type of knowledge is critical when developing a safe and effective incident action plan.

There are 5 building construction types. Can you name them all?
