Vehicle Fires

Course overview

Hands-on training is essential to smooth operations in the event of a vehicle fire. Vehicle fires often have fewer visible flames than a structure fire, but pose significant hazards to the safety of responders who approach. Some vehicle parts can explode when exposed to heat and flames.

Review the parts of a vehicle that can pose a risk to responders and how to approach a vehicle safely in order to extinguish a vehicle fire.
