We all hear of flashovers and the dangers but because it hasn’t happened to us we just pass it off. Being in the simulator and being able to see the signs of a flashover and then watch it occur definitely opens up your eyes and gives you a reality check as to the dangers of an impending flashover. I think this training is a must for all firefighters no matter what the rank. It is invaluable and might just help save your life or another brothers life someday. Chief Rufer has a great staff and a great program going. It would be a waste not to take advantage of it.
