Hazards of Modern Roofs
Lieutenant/Training Officer John Shafer, Greencastle (IN) Fire Department
An intense and concentrated examination of trends and methods in modern building construction
with an emphasis on roofs, their direct relationship on vertical ventilation, structural firefighting
operations, and firefighter survivability. Inherent roof construction features and hazards that
directly influence truck company work are the main focus areas. The program addresses timely
issues related to modern roofs and an upcoming push to make sustainable buildings. Various
green roofs, methods, and exotic materials used to achieve green standards and the potential
hazards they present to fire service personnel are also examined. Become acquainted with
materials such as recycled rubber shingles, solar panels, and green (garden) roofs that have not
been part of traditional building construction. ALL LEVELS
Hope to see you all there!
Lt. John Shafe
