Code 3 Podcast: What burn buildings can teach us

Exploring the benefits and limitations of training with live fire, with David Rhodes


In this episode, we're talking burn buildings.

The best simulated fires come from actual homes, such as those that are abandoned or about to be demolished; setting them on fire is pretty realistic. But, most times, they’re not available when you need them, and they're not especially safe.

So, we use burn buildings, even though they have limitations. Here to discuss those limitations on this episode is David Rhodes.

Rhodes has over three decades of fire service experience. He is a chief elder for the Georgia Smoke Diver program, a member of the FDIC Executive Advisory Board, as well as a training coordinator for FDIC.  Rhodes is also president of Rhodes Consultants, Inc., which provides public safety training, consulting and promotional assessment.
