Knowing Your Buildings
Transcript of Knowing Your Buildings
In order to reduce unforced mental errors, missteps and unsafe operating positions, we need to:
Have accurate observation
Recognize hazardous building features and fire conditions
Utilize knowledge and experience in knowing what happens to the building when involved in fire
In short, we all need to become more building literate
