Pre-Planning and Fire Suppression of Buildings Under Construction

This program is designed to provide background and information to fire departments that may experience the construction of large area buildings in their community. Many fire departments have limited experience in planning and response to these complex buildings. This requires a thorough understanding of fire and building code provisions as well as the proper use of NFPA 241, Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations and NFPA 1620, Standard for Pre-Incident Planning. The second half of this program discusses fire suppression concerns and considerations when a large area construction site experiences a fire.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify risks & hazards on constructions sites. Learn the leading causes of fires in structures under construction.
  2. Apply model codes and standards that pertain to safety precautions during construction and pre-incident planning.
  3. Identify procedures and methods of pre-incident planning from the moment a building is contemplated.
  4. Using case studies, develop strategies and tactics to suppress a fire on a construction site of a large area building.
