P 101 ep 1-b P 101 ep 1-b Presentation Transcript

  • 1B-01-P101-EP
  • Lesson Objective Explain the fire prevention triangle List examples of risk, hazard, and values as related to fire prevention 1B-02-P101-EP
  • Introduction Over half of the United States, about one billion acres is forest, brush, and grasslands. Annually, about 100,000 wildfires start on these lands. 1B-03-P101-EP
  •  These fires burn more than five million acres, destroying structures, resources, and lives. The average cost to suppress these fires exceed 1.2 billion dollars. 1B-04-P101-EP
  • The Serious Wildland FireProblem In The U.S. 90 percent of these fires are human caused. Different regions of the U.S. experience unique fire cause problems. The west may be lightning, but the northeast and south are human caused. 1B-05-P101-EP
  • Major Causes Of Wildland Fires Arson  Children Campfires  Railroads Debris burning  Power lines Equipment use Smoking 1B-06-P101-EP
  • The Wildland Fire Environment Topography, fuels, and air mass (weather) Ignition susceptibility and fire behavior are determined by these elements. Wildland environment no longer consists only of naturally occurring elements. 1B-07-P101-EP
  • The Wildland Fire Environment An important effect on the environment is the human impact. The suppression of periodic natural wildland fire has changed fuels characteristics. The wildland fire prevention problem will increase. 1B-08-P101-EP
  • Wildland Fire Prevention In The U.S. A National and Regional integrated program Wildland Fire Prevention is complex 1B-09-P101-EP
  • Wildland Fire Prevention Defined: Activities, such as, public education, community outreach, law enforcement, and reduction of hazardous fuels that are intended to reduce wildland fire and the risks it poses to life and property. 1B-10-P101-EP
  • Risks “Potential To Ignite” Equipment,  Railroads vehicles  Transportation Campfires systems Smoking  Structures Children  Incendiary 1B-11-P101-EP
  • EQUIPMENT 1B-12-P101-EP
  • 1B-13-P101-EP
  • 1B-14-P101-EP
  • VEHICLE ACCIDENTS 1B-15-P101-EP
  • 1B-16-P101-EP
  • 1B-17-P101-EP
  • Structures 1B-18-P101-EP
  • 1B-19-P101-EP
  • Hazard Is Fuel Defined By Its: Volume  Arrangement Type  Location Condition 1B-20-P101-EP
  • The fuels, topographic, and weatherfeatures of an area determine theease of ignition and fire suppressiondifficulty. 1B-21-P101-EP
  • Hazard is the “Potential To Burn” Activity  Trash debris/slash  Ground litter Homes/structures Dry grass Dead trees 1B-22-P101-EP
  • RISK and HAZARD EQUALS FIRE 1B-23-P101-EP
  • Value is defined as any area, whetherit be natural or developed, where lossor damage from Wildland Fire wouldbe unacceptable. 1B-24-P101-EP
  • Examples Of Value Elements CouldBe: Developments  Soils Watershed  Plants Cultural Aesthetic/scenic 1B-25-P101-EP
  • Fire Prevention TriangleEDUCATION ENGINEERING ENFORCEMENT 1B-26-P101-EP
  •  The fire prevention triangle is used by Fire Prevention Specialists to describe the fire prevention program. Like the fire triangle, the fire prevention triangle separates a program into three key areas. 1B-27-P101-EP
  •  The education leg of the triangle, the objective is to modify or change human behavior. 1B-28-P101-EP
  • Fire Prevention Education HasFive Main Elements That AreIntended To: Create an awareness of the fire problem Provide information needed to understand the risks, hazards, and values associated with wildfire 1B-29-P101-EP
  • Fire Prevention Education Will: Establish ownership with the problem Change attitude Change behavior 1B-30-P101-EP
  • Fire Prevention Education Four KeyFactors Target the right people Use the right message Time the message appropriately Use the appropriate vehicle/transmission 1B-31-P101-EP
  • Types of Educational Activities ThatHelp Deliver The Wildfire PreventionMessage To: A specific audience To address a specific problem At key times, for maximum effectiveness 1B-32-P101-EP

  • What Is Engineering and How Is It Done? 1B-40-P101-EP
  • Removing The Heat Source FromThe Fuel This involves such actions as using spark arresters, closing an area because of a hazardous situation, or smoking only in designated areas 1B-41-P101-EP
