Salvage and Overhaul

Course overview

Both salvage and overhaul are vital processes to protect personal belongings and to investigate the total extinguishment of a fire. When engaging in salvage and overhaul, firefighters face inherent physical dangers and health-related risks.

The focus of this course is to create an overall awareness of the dangers and risks to firefighters associated with salvage and overhaul operations and describe the process of conducting salvage and overhaul properly and safely. In addition, the need for public relations, security, and documentation within the context of salvage and overhaul will also be presented.
