Chief Officer Training Curriculum

Operations

Module 16:

Dormitory Simulation Exercise


Objectives

Objectives

  • Identify construction features of dormitories

  • Identify firefighting problems inherent in dormitory construction

  • Establish incident objectives

  • Determine strategies


Objectives continued

Objectives (continued)

  • Select tactics

  • Identify and request resources

  • Select alternate solutions

  • Establish an appropriate ICS organization to manage the incident


Overview

Overview

  • Construction features and firefighting in dormitories

    • Ordinary construction

    • Noncombustible construction

    • Mixed construction

  • Life safety, fire training, and fire prevention


Ordinary construction features

Ordinary Construction Features

  • Describes a variety of buildings

  • Limit to height of masonry buildings

  • Wood-joist flooring

  • Roof construction


Firefighting ordinary construction

Firefighting—Ordinary Construction

  • Structural stability

  • Efficiency of masonry walls

  • Void spaces

  • Stability of the interior


Noncombustible construction features

Noncombustible Construction Features

  • Common in high-rise/mid-rise structures

    • Concrete frame

    • Steel frame

  • Fire-resistive requirements

    • Columns: 3 hours

    • Girders and beams: 2 hours

    • Roofs: 2 hours

    • Floors: 2 hours

    • Exterior walls: 4 hours


Firefighting noncombustible construction

Firefighting—Noncombustible Construction

  • Compartmentation

  • Open-space areas

  • Access

  • Ventilation


Firefighting noncombustible construction continued

Firefighting—Noncombustible Construction (continued)

  • Water supply

  • Resources

  • Strategy/tactics

  • Life safety


Mixed construction features

Mixed Construction Features

  • Often composites of older sections

  • Newer sections often fire resistive

  • Mixed construction often creates voids


Firefighting mixed construction

Firefighting—Mixed Construction

  • Similar to firefighting in ordinary construction

    • Concealed void spaces

    • Lack of proper compartmentalization

    • Common lofts or attics


Life safety fire training fire prevention

Life Safety/Fire Training/Fire Prevention

  • Understanding 911

  • Frequent evacuation drills

  • Accessibility to room keys

  • Installation of self-closing doors


Life safety fire training fire prevention continued

Life Safety/Fire Training/Fire Prevention (continued)

  • Installation of sprinklers/smoke detectors

  • Limiting highly combustible interior decorations

  • Frequent inspection programs

  • Changing fire safety attitudes
