Fighting a fire is a dangerous series of orchestrated events that a fire department must carefully maneuver through. When human lives are at stake, any errors could have severe consequences. The Fire Department in any municipality is well trained to respond to such a disaster. However small or large a fire may be, the premise is still the same- save lives and minimize the damage. Architects and Contractors are squarely involved in this. The Architect is responsible for designing a safe building for its occupants by meeting the building code and the Contractor is responsible for building the design as proposed. To help ensure these are met, officials with the City of Worcester Fire Department is actively involved with the initial review of the documents through occupancy.
Thomas Bull has been with the City of Worcester Fire Department since 2000 and became Captain of Fire Prevention in 2013. With a Master of Science in Fire Protection Engineering from Worcester Polytech Institute, a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from UMass, Amherst, and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from UMass Amherst, his extensive education and experience made him well suited to fill the position he currently holds as Captain. Part of his responsibilities is to review the drawings of proposed buildings within the City of Worcester to ensure that they meet code and are able to provide firefighters with the necessary ability to efficiently tackle any fire or emergency that may arise.
This month’s presentation and interactive discussion will be about the logistics involved when the Fire Department approaches a building on fire and what happens from the time the fire engine pulls up to the building to the actual act of fighting the fire. Who better than Captain Bull to lead this presentation!
The program is pending approval by the AIA for 1 HSW continuing education credit. After participating in this program, attendees will be able to:
So, come and learn how fire fighters approach a burning building and risk their lives to save yours.
