Wood Product Display for Fire Science Training

Wood product training display cases were developed as part of the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) grant to American Forrest & Paper Association. The display case provides industry product samples that will be used to enhance the building construction curriculum taught in our program. Building Construction for Fire Protection is one of the required core courses for all students in the Fire Science Technology Program. The course was developed by the Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Associate Degree Curriculum Committee, and became one of the six National Model Fire Science Program Courses. Presented at the annual Fire Science Advisory Committee meeting in August, this display case should help with the understanding of the basic products that are used today.
