Members of the PFD and surrounding departments, attended a one-day seminar called “The Art of Reading Smoke,” at Pottsville Area’s D.H.H. Lengel Middle School. The class was hosted by five local firefighting organizations and the presenter was David W. Dodson, owner and lead instructor of Response Solutions LLC in Eastlake, Colo. Over 243 firefighters attended the 8hr seminar on how to read smoke so firefighters and officers can predict where the fire is located and how the fire is going to behave as time progresses.
The seminar was sponsored by the Pottsville Fire Department, Mahanoy City Fire Department, Schuylkill Haven Fire Department, Schuylkill County LEPC and Schuylkill County Emergency Services Training Center.
