Unit 6: Understanding Fire Hoses

Resource ID: 13525 Grade Range: 11, 12 Institutional Organization: UNT
In this lesson, students will be expected to identify various rescue equipment as well as conduct a mock search and rescue drill. 
Resource ID: 13527 Grade Range: 11, 12 Institutional Organization: UNT
It is necessary for firefighters to understand the safe operation and use of fire service hoses. To fight fire effectively, it is mandatory that they understand what type of hose to use, when and how to deploy hose lines, and how to effectively use a hose at a fire scene.  Since they are designed to move water to the fire scene, failing to learn the capabilities and limitations of fire hoses could have severe consequences. Through this lesson, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate skills related to hose connections. They will also have the opportunity to research the classifications of fire service hoses to create presentations for the class. 
Resource ID: 13529 Grade Range: 11, 12 Institutional Organization: UNT

Unit 9: After a Fire

Resource ID: 13523 Grade Range: 11, 12 Institutional Organization: UNT
In this lesson, students will be expected to roll a salvage cover and spread a salvage cover using the one-firefighter method.  If loss control at a fire scene is not properly conducted there is a danger of rekindles, lost evidence, and greater damage to the structure than was caused by the initial incident.
Resource ID: 13535 Grade Range: 11, 12 Institutional Organization: UNT
Every year, many firefighters die while performing their sworn duties. Technological changes, construction methods and materials, and everyday items used at home, school, and work continue to make firefighting a dangerous occupation. We can reduce the losses of life and property, if more emphasis is placed on educating the public about fire prevention. Through this lesson, students will explore components relating to fire prevention as well as educating the public about these prevention methods. Finally, students will have the opportunity to conduct fire inspections around their school, then discuss their findings with their classmates.
