Pagination or Media Count:
A study was performed to compare the training effectiveness of natural and smoke-abated simulated engine room fires through the use of objective measures of student performance augmented by student and instructor opinions. Two groups of Fire Fighting School students were trained and tested. One group received training on natural fires, followed by one natural and one smoke-abated criterion test fire. The second group received training on smoke-abated fires, followed by one natural and one smoke-abated criterion test fire. Student error data were collected during all fires. Opinion data were collected at the conclusion of test fires.
