The purpose of firestopping is to prevent flames, gases and smoke from passing through openings created for wiring, piping,
joints and other gaps in walls. Many of these gaps and opening are left behind by cable installation ,electrical and plumbing
companies that don't take the time to finish the job properly.
This is a fairly simple certification that does not require a person to be certified as a cable installer, although it is necessary
to have some experience so you don't disconnect the wrong cables.
Basically you are learning the different techniques and products, how to apply them in various situations so that buildings
meet OSHA standards.
Abandoned Cable Removal
Consists of ridding buildings of old cable that is left in false ceiling and walls by
contractors hired to make upgrades. Oddly enough, over time this cable becomes
highly combustible, releasing gases and actually turning into a substance that can spontaneously start or fuel a fire.
This is excellent training for existing firefighters to take adding on an fire risk assessment and repair function.
Out-of-Sight Fire Hazard: Abandoned cables and wires
in the ceilings and in the walls from previous network and power installations by previous tenants have accumulated in most of our buildings. These
abandoned cables are a source for fueling fire, smoke and lethal toxic fumes that can incapacitate and kill.
