NTIS: PB/83-170639 :89 pages
The objective of this project was to evaluate a 1-day, on-site training program that would enable miners to make rapid judgments on whether to attempt to extinguish small fires in mines and how best to use the firefighting equipment on hand. Project activities included the analysis of fire report data to define and delineate physical and behavioral variables that affect firefighting activities. These activities culminated in a description of the tasks involved in extinguishing small fires under various mine conditions. The course consists of slides, audio-cassettes, case studies, and actual practice using fire extinguishers.
