Big Box Store Fires – Baytown, TX

December 4 - December 5


Big Box Store Fires
Hosted by the Baytown Fire Department at 7022 Bayway Drive Baytown, TX
December 4-5, 2017 at 8:30 AM

Big boxes are basically disposable shells to cover merchandise for a relatively short period of time. This is due to retail cycles being volatile and retailers potentially needing to change location or undergo major renovations to remain competitive.

These structures most often will have heavy fire loads, may have high rack storage and fortified rear access points. While these structures will be sprinklered, a rapidly growing fire may overtake the structure quickly. On-going risk assessment, tactic driven strategies will be the linchpin of this program.

Following an interactive classroom presentation and review of case studies, students will participate in a series of interactive scenario based training exercises involving fires in these structures.
