                                                                                         5
VISITOR and GUEST GUIDELINES
Recognizing that training of the nature that takes place at STC presents the possibility
of injury to participants and observers, it is the guideline of the STC that the presence of
persons not directly involved in training at the facility should be avoided whenever
possible. This guideline must be tempered with consideration that the facility is a public
location and there is workflow that necessitates individuals to enter and depart the
facility without prior notice. Additionally, convenience of students and staff requires
some consideration for visitors during the period before and after classes, as well as
during lunch and other breaks.

For the purpose of this guideline, “VISITORS” are defined as including, but not limited
to:

      Instructors not associated with training presently being conducted at the facility.
      Members of emergency services agencies not enrolled in training presently being
       conducted at the facility.
      Employees of the facility not present for work purposes or enrolled in training
       presently being conducted.
      Chiefs and supervisors of students enrolled in training programs.
      Friends and family of students and instructors involved in training programs.
      Interested members of the general public.

All visitors to the facility must report to the STC office on their arrival and advise the
STC staff on-duty of their presence. These individuals will be issued a visitor pass that
must be displayed on their person while on site. This pass must be returned prior to
leaving the facility (Visitors may be asked to surrender a driver‟s license or other ID in
exchange). If the employee is not present in the office, the prospective visitor must wait
until a STC employee returns.

Under no circumstances will visitors be permitted at training evolution areas. Any visitor
failing to comply with these directions will be removed from the facility immediately.

For the purpose of this policy, “GUESTS” are defined as including, but not limited to:

Individuals who have made, or have had made for them, prior arrangements with STC
staff to more closely observe or participate in training activities. This may include:

      Elected officials.
      Officers/members of emergency services organizations interested in the
       capabilities and facilities of the STC.
      Other VIPs.

Prospective guests and their hosts are encouraged to make their intentions known to
facility staff as far in advance as practical to ensure full consideration of their request.



                                                                                               6
Level of access and participation for these individuals will be determined on a case by
case basis depending on training, insurance, supervision available, and intent of visit.
Final decision on these issues rests solely with the Fire/Rescue Director.

It is not the intention of this guideline to limit facility access for employees of the facility
or Cape Fear Community College, when these individuals are present and conducting
official business. Further, it is not the intention of this guideline to restrict access to
personnel visiting the facility to conduct official business with STC employees.




                                                                                                   7
DRILL TOWER
This seven story drill tower is equipped with interior and exterior stairs, elevator shaft,
vertical and horizontal confined space training areas, sprinkler and standpipe system,
and balconies.

USE
The drill tower may be used for the following evolutions:
       1. Hose advances
       2. Ladder raises
       3. Standpipe, and sprinkler evolutions
       4. Search and rescue evolutions
       5. Aerial apparatus operations
       6. High angle rope work
       7. Confined space training


SAFETY
       1. Only smoke generators will be used to produce artificial smoke in the Drill
       Tower
       2. No smoke bombs, flares, fires, tear gas, or pepper gas will be used in the
       Drill Tower.
       3. No water will be flowed in the stair tower at ground floor due to electrical
       enclosures.
       4. 1 ¾” or smaller are the only acceptable lines for use on the interior or
       exterior of the Drill Tower. At no time should master streams be used on this
       building.
       5. When working on the roof in proximity of the tower, all personnel must be
       adequately “tied in.”
       6. When high angle evolutions are taking place there shall be a minimum of the
       following personnel present:
              a. (1) Incident Commander
              b. (1) Belay person for each line (may be properly instructed
              students)
              c. (1) Certified high angle instructor, and (1) assistant
              instructor/safety officer

DRAFTING PIT

USE
This structure is used to train in the operation of pumping apparatus from a draft. There
are two dry hydrants for attachment of hard sleeve. A flow test kit, or pitot gauge is
available from the STC for use at this evolution

SAFETY
      1. Plywood panels must be placed under apparatus exhaust prior to beginning
      the evolution. (This will prevent the macadam from being melted.)
      2. Personnel should avoid walking on grates.
      3. No personnel shall enter the pit by way of man ways.
      4. Flows in excess of 1250 gpm usually will require the use of both discharge
      manifolds.
      5. No personnel will place any object except a pitot gauge into the hatch on the
      “torpedo tubes”. If flow test kit is used the operator must ensure that it is
      tightened with a wrench. After establishing the flow, if the operator wishes to
      continue pumping he must turn the blade on the flow test kit out of the stream to
      prevent wear.

CLEAN UP AND RESTORATION
      1. All adapters and hard sleeve shall be returned to the storeroom.
      2. Pitot gauge, or flow test kit shall be returned to STC employee.
      3. All grates shall be returned to holders.
      4. Water shall be added/removed to return pit to its original level.




                                                                                          9
VEHICLE EXTRICATION AREA

This evolution area is simply a leveled off area at the STC used for vehicle extrication
practical exercises.

USE
This evolution area is used as a place for students to practice the various facets of
vehicle extrication.

SAFETY
       1. During evolutions in this area there shall be present a minimum of:
              a. (1) Incident Commander
              b. (1) OIC/ Instructor
              c. (1) or more Safety Officers depending on the evolution.

       2. All common sense safety guidelines should be followed when performing
       evolutions, especially regarding power tools and stabilization.

CLEAN UP AND RESTORATION
       1. All pieces of doors, windshields, roofs, etc. shall be placed in vehicles.
       2. All broken glass shall be policed as best as possible.
       3. User must arrange to have vehicle removed within 2 days of class or it will be
       removed and the service billed for by the STC.




                                                                                           10
CASCADE AND COMPRESSOR SYSTEMS
 A compressor and cascade system have been located in the storage area at the end of
the Commercial Burn Building. All significant functions of the system shall be monitored
by a Scott X4 microprocessor Controller. The unit shall be mounted in the fill station
control panel so that the entire system can be controlled and operated from one
location. The BAC (Breathing Apparatus Cylinder) charge system is a separate system
and is designed to safely and efficiently recharge BACs in a protective „chamber‟ that
will contain all fragments in the event of a BAC failure. The system is designed so that
2 BACs are charged within the chamber while 2 BACs are attached and made ready on
the outside of the chamber.

OPERATION
The compressor shall be operated by personnel trained and included on the STC
Operator List for this equipment. The cascade systems can be used by anyone who is
experienced with this type of system. Determination of adequate experience rests with
the OIC.

CLEAN UP AND RESTORATION
If the OIC feels that he will need more air during the evolution he shall notify the STC
employee who will operate the compressor to fill the in house system.


Following the evolution the STC employee shall fill the system if air has been used from
more than one bank.




                                                                                           11
COMMERCIAL BURN BUILDING

The commercial burn building consists of 2 stories which have a total of 6,000 square ft.
The burn facility includes a variety of areas for training, i.e., grating room, dikes training,
maze room, marine engine area and control room simulation. Two live burn LP gas
props are included in the commercial burn building.
The floors are designed to closely simulate real-life fire attack problems encountered in
similar commercial buildings. The windows and doors consist of steel plate components
for durability. Windows are equipped with latching devices that are capable of providing
for fairly realistic entry challenges.

USE
This structure is to be utilized for any non-fire evolutions that can not effectively be
taught elsewhere on the site. The scope of the scenarios possible is limited only by the
imagination of the personnel and any facility limitations outlined below.

OPERATIONS/SAFETY
       Overview
       All live-fire evolutions conducted in the burn building will be in conjunction with
       Burn Facilitators (BFs). Their directions and decisions are to be considered final
       during any evolution. It is their responsibility to take input from the class
       instructors (whether organizationally appointed or PA State Fire Academy
       certified), and mesh them with facility policies and procedures to develop
       scenarios that meet the following prioritized objectives:
               1. Safe for all participants including students, staff, and observers.
               2. In the best interest of the physical plant.
               3. Accomplish realistic educational objectives.

       Procedural
       A first aid station must be established and manned by personnel with a minimum
       of PA DOH First Responder certification. Appropriate BLS equipment is
       available from the STC employee. The designated first aid station MUST be
       manned at all times when evolutions are underway. EMT should be on site
       during any burn. Personnel may “swap-out” during a class to allow all individuals
       an opportunity to participate.
       A walk-through of the areas to be used must be conducted for any persons not
       familiar with the layout of the structure. All personnel must understand the
       operation of the emergency position of the forcible entry door latches.
       No use of attack lines larger than 2 inch shall be permitted in or on the burn
       building.
       There shall be no prying on doors or windows other than in a way to activate the
       forcible entry props (Eg. No prying of hinge sides, cutting of components, etc.)
       During all evolutions in the structure an accountability system must be utilized.
       The STC will provide a functional system for use, or the agency may elect to

                                                                                            12
utilize its own system if desired.
The accountability system must be managed by a Safety Officer (SO) or an
assistant working under the auspices of the SO. This individual will be
responsible for conducting personnel accountability reviews as per organizational
policies, but not less frequently than at the beginning and end of each scenario.
Failure of a PAR to prove out shall result in the RIT being activated and the IC to
take immediate steps to locate missing personnel.
The SO will be equipped with a tablet that allows the Temperature Monitoring
System (TMS) to be monitored. This will allow the SO to move about the
structure and perform other necessary tasks while still having access to an
indicator of internal conditions.
During all live fire evolutions a Rapid Intervention Team must be established.
This team must consist of a minimum of two firefighters who are fully geared and
prepared to enter the structure to assist/affect rescue of an individual in distress.
This team may be utilized during the scenario for other functions as determined
by organizational policies (throwing ladders, helping to stretch hose, etc.) but
should be in the general vicinity of the SO and prepared to be deployed in an
emergency.
Use of the burn building will be weather permitting. The final decision as to
whether a class will take place rests with the Director.
Personnel
The Officer in Charge (OIC) of the organization using the structure is responsible
for assuring that each student entering the burn building has demonstrated
competency in SCBA operation and general safety practices. NOTE: the OIC
may or may not be the person who is the designated Incident Commander (IC)
for any given scenario.
Pants and long sleeve shirt beneath gear are recommended for all live fire
evolutions.
During operations, all personnel in the „hot zone‟ must wear full protective gear.
All personnel entering the building when any form of burn is taking place must be
attired in full protective clothing including bunker coat, pants, helmet, gloves,
hood, SCBA and PASS device.
It is the intent of this policy to require, as a minimum, the following persons to be
present during a live fire evolution:
       STC Employee – Responsible for overall operation of the Center.
       Burn Facilitator (BF) (2 minimum) – Directly responsible for all operations
         in the burn building.
       Organizational Officer in Charge (OIC) – This individual is responsible
          for the users of the burn building. As an individual, he is accountable
          for the actions of all students in the program. He may be a STC
          Instructor or a Fire Chief (Chief of a single company operation or

                                                                                    14
RESIDENTIAL BURN BUILDING

The ranch style residential burn building is approximately 1500 sq ft and detailed to
match as closely as possible a real single family structure. The building consists of 3
bedrooms, 1 bath, living room & kitchen.


A LP gas burn kitchen stove prop is used for training. The roof includes a “cut-out” to
allow crews to vertically ventilate the through the top of the house. Also included in the
structure is a forcible entry prop.

OPERATIONS/SAFETY
       Overview
       All live-fire evolutions conducted in the burn building will be in conjunction with
       Burn Facilitators (BFs). Their directions and decisions are to be considered final
       during any evolution. It is their responsibility to take input from the class
       instructors (whether organizationally appointed or PA State Fire Academy
       certified), and mesh them with facility policies and procedures to develop
       scenarios that meet the following prioritized objectives:
               1. Safe for all participants including students, staff, and observers.
               2. In the best interest of the physical plant.
               3. Accomplish realistic educational objectives.
       Procedural
       A first aid station must be established and manned by personnel with a minimum
       of PA DOH First Responder certification. Appropriate BLS equipment is
       available from the STC employee. The designated first aid station MUST be
       manned at all times when evolutions are underway. EMT should be on site
       during any burn. Personnel may “swap-out” during a class to allow all individuals
       an opportunity to participate.
       A walk-through of the areas to be used must be conducted for any persons not
       familiar with the layout of the structure. All personnel must understand the
       operation of the emergency position of the forcible entry door latches.
   No use of attack lines larger than 2 inch shall be permitted in or on the burn
      building.
       There shall be no prying on doors or windows other than in a way to activate the
       forcible entry props (Eg. No prying of hinge sides, cutting of components, etc.)
   During all evolutions in the structure an accountability system must be utilized. The
   STC will provide a functional system for use, or the agency may elect to utilize its
   own system if desired.
       The accountability system must be managed by a Safety Officer (SO) or an
       assistant working under the auspices of the SO. This individual will be
       responsible for conducting personnel accountability reviews as per organizational
       policies, but not less frequently than at the beginning and end of each scenario.
       Failure of a PAR to prove out shall result in the RIT being activated and the IC to
       take immediate steps to locate missing personnel.

                                                                                          15
The SO will be equipped with a tablet that allows the Temperature Monitoring
System (TMS) to be monitored. This will allow the SO to move about the
structure and perform other necessary tasks while still having access to an
indicator of internal conditions.
During all live fire evolutions a Rapid Intervention Team must be established.
This team must consist of a minimum of two firefighters who are fully geared and
prepared to enter the structure to assist/affect rescue of an individual in distress.
This team may be utilized during the scenario for other functions as determined
by organizational policies (throwing ladders, helping to stretch hose, etc.) but
should be in the general vicinity of the SO and prepared to be deployed in an
emergency.
Use of the burn building will be weather permitting. The final decision as to
whether a class will take place rests with the Director.


Personnel
The Officer in Charge (OIC) of the organization using the structure is responsible
for assuring that each student entering the burn building has demonstrated
competency in SCBA operation and general safety practices. NOTE: the OIC
may or may not be the person who is the designated Incident Commander (IC)
for any given scenario.
Pants and long sleeve shirt beneath gear are recommended for all live fire
evolutions.
During operations, all personnel in the „hot zone‟ must wear full protective gear.
All personnel entering the building when any form of burn is taking place must be
attired in full protective clothing including bunker coat, pants, helmet, gloves,
hood, SCBA and PASS device.
It is the intent of this policy to require, as a minimum, the following persons to be
present during a live fire evolution:
       STC Employee – Responsible for overall operation of the Center.
       Burn Facilitator (BF) (2 minimum) – Directly responsible for all operations
         in the burn building.
       Organizational Officer in Charge (OIC) – This individual is responsible
          for the users of the burn building. As an individual, he is accountable
          for the actions of all students in the program. He may be a STC
          Instructor or a Fire Chief (Chief of a single company operation or
          designated Chief in charge of a multi-company drill). This person may
          also be a student in the class.
       Safety Officer (SO) – A knowledgeable individual able to make decisions
          about the safety of operations taking place. This individual will be
          responsible for managing scene accountability either directly or
          through an assistant. This individual may be a student if approved by
          the OIC and BFs. This individual may change from one evolution to
          the next.
                                                                                   16
          Incident Commander (IC) – The person immediately responsible for
             making decisions about the scenario at hand. This individual may be a
             student depending on the educational objectives of the scenario, and if
             the OIC and BFs approve.
          RIT – A 2 person team (minimum) designated to assist a participant in
             distress or unable to be accounted for during a scenario. These
             individuals may be students depending on the educational objectives
             of the scenario, and if the OIC and BFs approve.
          EMT – EMT Station should be set up and maintained at all times burns
            are being conducted. This individual may be a student, but may not
            participate in ANY other aspect of the scenario when acting in this role.
    Fire Development
    Size and intensity of fires will be determined by the BFs in order to meet safety
    and scenario requirements. Burning may only be done in designated burn areas.
CLEAN UP AND RESTORATION
    It is the responsibility of th OIC to ensure that the following is completed to
    the satisfaction of the assigned BFs. The OIC must ensure that appropriate
    time and personnel are available at the completion of a drill to satisfy these
    requirements:
    Any debris shall be removed to an appropriate container as indicated by BFs.
    Areas around the structure shall be cleaned of debris by sweeping and placing
    debris in dumpster.
    Any standing water shall be swept to the exterior. All roof decks shall be
    swept/hosed to remove debris.
    Any STC owned tools (shovels, brooms, etc.) shall be returned to the storage
    areas on the floor they were acquired from.
    All hatches and covers shall be closed.
