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

Room 109-110

Hope to see you all there!

Lt. John Shafe
