Burn Building

The tower portion of the burn building, seen here on the left is used for high angle rope rescue training. The sides of the building are designed to be laddered. The roof of the center section has panels used for ventilation training.

Smoke Machine

The unit pictured on the left is the artificial smoke generator. The smoke generator uses a special solution that is non-toxic to produce artificial smoke. Using valves (seen near the base of the white pipes) the smoke can be distributed throughout the building at different points.

Smoke Outlet

The white PVC, 90 degree elbow pictured on the left is one of the artificial smoke outlets. The pipe next to that will carry the artificial smoke to the next level.
