fireproof clothing, and technology equipment changing over years prove that progress saves lives and helps structure fires. Discovering the differences between past and modern helmets, changes in turnout gear , other equipment used to fight fires, plus researching the firefighting history. In the 1600's firefighting starts with the Romans and grappled with heat, fire, and toxic smoke. Most structures demolish during the fire because the equipment inadequate enough to fight structural fires
Smoke Ventilation Firefighters, lately defined as heroes, have a very exciting job and do some pretty amazing things. My main interests however, is how firefighters ventilate heat and smoke from a structure fire. What pieces of equipment do they use? How do they use those pieces of equipment? Why ventilation is so important and why do they take certain precautions when using their equipment? Growing up in the woods has made my life
avalanche prone area with a helicopter, because after high avalanche warnings in the area and a strict verbal by ski patrol not to cross the boundary they decided to anyway (Sharples). These men were charged for everything that it cost to ensure their safe arrival. I’m proposing that we do the samething here in America.

Some of this information includes: increased importance of the smoke detector, fire safety houses, fire safety videos, educational websites, high school cadet programs, and fire education equipment. All of these are very helpful and successful ways of teaching about fire safety. Smoke detectors are a first and sometimes only warning that a fire may be starting.

firefighting equipment have contributed to the greater good, and perhaps prevented a more catastrophic event. Through the 18th and 19th centuries, many changes came about to help the prevention or containment of building fires. As building engineering progressed, popular flammable building materials were replaced with non-flammable steel and concrete. Urban engineering led to the installation of water mains and hydrants. Public fire departments are formed and outfitted with specialized equipment.
strong and safe structures, as new construction methods advance, engineers are building new disasters for the lives of future citizens and firefighters. There are certain considerations or realities that fire fighters must deal with during a high-rise fire. Fires in tall buildings generally require more complicated operational approaches than most structure fires. Due to the fact that the type of equipment needed for buildings that are 50-100 stories high is very limited, firefighters must find alternative
much responsibility, pressure, and risk? I know I could. It is a dream of mine to become a firefighter in all sense of the word. I enjoy the thought of risk taking and even helping people, which is why I think that this profession would be just right for me.

In these three key areas, the Chief addresses defined and accepted behaviors, attitudes, beliefs and values (16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives, 2017, p. 1).

Unfortunately, Fire Chiefs at RMFD come and go resulting in the absence of cultural guidance from our leadership
