The Bowstring Arch and Heavy Timber Truss: Operational Considerations

 

The Bowstring Arch and Heavy Timber Truss: Operational Considerations

There’s a tremendous lack of understanding in the American Fire Service as to what accurately defines and comprises a Heavy Timber Bowstring Truss and the Operational and Safety Precautions that must be recognized, implemented and trained on, in order to achieve and maintain operational excellence, company integrity and firefighter safety on the fireground.

All bowstring trusses are not created equal and do not share the same characteristics when found in a building and occupancy. They may have the same shape, but shape alone does not define the bowstring truss. Based on the type, design, construction, materials, age, span, spacing, configuration, occupancy and application there are vast differences and similarities. There are significant differences in terminology when referring to them and tactics that should be employed on the fireground- and yes there are prominent differences between east coast and west coast types and tactics, which will be presented along with extensive case studies.

The only seminar program of its kind in the United States, this program presents leading insights into the design, application and use of bowstring trusses in various occupancies and building types with specific considerations and insights for effective fireground operations and tactical safety. Presenting building anatomy, construction and design elements; the program will include discussions on the Heavy Timber Bowstring Truss, Arch-Rib Bowstring Truss, Laminate Cord Bowstring Truss, Lattice Bowstring Truss, Easybow Truss, Mack Truss, Summerbell Bowstring Truss, Mono-chord Bowstring Truss Duo-Chord Bowstring Truss, Segmental Multi-Cord Bowstring Truss, Tension Rod Bowstring Truss, Bowstring Arch Truss, Bowstring K-Truss, and Split-Ring Bowstring Truss TECO Bowstring Truss.

Fireground Leadership Academy: Rebooting Leadership: From the Station to the Streets

Fireground Leadership Academy: Rebooting Leadership: From the Station to the Streets

The Fireground Leadership Academy is a high focused and high impact program that assimilates three key functional areas that affect today’s emerging and practicing company and command officers and firefighter in the areas of Station Leadership, Training and Preparedness and Operational Leadership on today’s evolving fireground.

Today’s demanding fireground leaves negligible margin for errors or omissions requiring new skill sets, proficiencies and high accountability and tactical deployments executed with the highest degree of proficiencies and skill sets under the most challenging of operational demands and personnel risks.

Leadership starts at the station and transitions to the streets and incident scene requiring new skill sets, awareness, insights and operational adaptiveness. Leadership and Operations are integral and are fundamental to all facets; on and off the fireground. This program is facilitated by two highly regarded national service leaders and instructors, authors, lectures and chief fire officers, Christopher Naum and Doug Cline, and supported by a select adjunct faculty staff of prominent fire service leaders.
