1 United States Fire Administration Chief Officer Training Curriculum Operations Module 16: Dormitory Simulation Exercise

2 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-2 Objectives  Identify construction features of dormitories  Identify firefighting problems inherent in dormitory construction  Establish incident objectives  Determine strategies

3 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-3 Objectives (continued)  Select tactics  Identify and request resources  Select alternate solutions  Establish an appropriate ICS organization to manage the incident

4 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-4 Overview  Construction features and firefighting in dormitories –Ordinary construction –Noncombustible construction –Mixed construction  Life safety, fire training, and fire prevention

5 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-5 Ordinary Construction Features  Describes a variety of buildings  Limit to height of masonry buildings  Wood-joist flooring  Roof construction

6 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-6 Firefighting—Ordinary Construction  Structural stability  Efficiency of masonry walls  Void spaces  Stability of the interior

7 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-7 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

8 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-8 Firefighting—Noncombustible Construction  Compartmentation  Open-space areas  Access  Ventilation

9 United States Fire Administration Ops 16-9  Water supply  Resources  Strategy/tactics  Life safety Firefighting—Noncombustible Construction (continued)

10 United States Fire Administration Ops Mixed Construction Features  Often composites of older sections  Newer sections often fire resistive  Mixed construction often creates voids

11 United States Fire Administration Ops Firefighting—Mixed Construction  Similar to firefighting in ordinary construction –Concealed void spaces –Lack of proper compartmentalization –Common lofts or attics

12 United States Fire Administration Ops Life Safety/Fire Training/Fire Prevention  Understanding 911  Frequent evacuation drills  Accessibility to room keys  Installation of self-closing doors

13 United States Fire Administration Ops  Installation of sprinklers/smoke detectors  Limiting highly combustible interior decorations  Frequent inspection programs  Changing fire safety attitudes Life Safety/Fire Training/Fire Prevention (continued)
