Often, smoke issuing from a building is the only clue available to predict fire behavior and the likelihood of a flashover or rapid fire spread. First-arriving officers must read smoke before choosing attack tactical priorities. Incident Commanders and Safety Officers must know how to rapidly read smoke in order to keep crews within an acceptable-risk profile. In this DVD program, Dodson explains: Why Do We Read Smoke?; the "advanced" basics of reading smoke; hostile fire events and warning signs; the "reading smoke" process; tricks and short-cuts. Several practice examples are shown twice in order to test smoke-reading abilities: first without interpretation, and then pointing out significant observations and what each means.
