Quiz question 5 of 14: The question’s associated picture does not load properly.

Very informative
Mikemdunn 2018-10-04 13:30:35

Table didn't load in the quiz......

Great class
RAMalahy 2018-09-17 09:40:04

Quiz question regarding POI, the table failed to pull up during exam. Not sure as to why, but may need looking into by site developer.Would also like to see this unit narrated, like some of the previous units.
Mc98 2018-09-08 13:39:03

Learned a lot about the different stages in crown fires.
edaw 2018-08-23 05:17:54

it was good
schiappa544 2018-08-16 10:56:06

Print a copy of the probability of ignition table for the quiz. Mine wouldnt download and had to go to an outside source to complete the quiz.

it was a great less to take if you like this kind of work

Great Lesson and a good heads of on Extreme Fires
Robb 2018-06-20 22:25:46

Maybe add some narration? Not all pictures are clearly representative of event described (largely distance problem and understandable)
diablosurfs 2018-06-06 04:20:57

This gives more details and meaning to what I've been taught in the field.
j.crabtree 2018-05-21 23:42:10

stop having questions with multiple rite or wrong answers - its to confusing. Just the best answer or true or false; this goes for all your quizzes in every module.
eclay 2018-05-19 10:18:30

I am a very visual learner. The videos really helped. I would like to see more videos with the applicable individual elements identified.
finnellc 2018-05-18 20:34:39

I thought the online S-290 class had a lot of good information to know before going to a wildland fire.
djherick 2018-05-10 17:51:37

Good class, learned a lot.
mitzvot5 2018-05-06 14:24:19

the S-290 tests are not easy, and will require a lot of focus and hard work to pass.
biggus 2018-05-03 08:55:59

Could have had more videos relating to the topic. I would have liked to have seen media for each of the crown fire types. Didn't really seem to drive home the point about extreme fire
KimberlyK 2018-04-29 21:34:35

Information was presented in clear language which was easy to understand.
NW91 2018-04-28 14:57:13

pvfire9113 2018-04-25 09:34:14

Better reading then unit 10 but still would have been much better in video form.
lppvfd 2018-04-22 17:14:47

I would like to see more emphasis on wildland and wildland urban interface. Many of us today live in extremely rough terrain, incredible amount of grasses/fuel load, hardwoods (oak), and high surface winds.

The videos were very relavent and showed interesting fire development.
ivfd8901 2018-03-01 12:34:49

Good overall course, a bit too technical at times.

Stevero911 2018-02-23 09:45:03

7Roberts 2018-02-21 23:21:08

This is a great course for those that want to learn the content in their own time. It merely serves as a primer and the information should be reviewed and applied on an ongoing basis on the fire line.

Again, when trying to impart this knowledge to students, I guess I would concentrate on what we really need to know. That way, we will remember what we learned. There is a lot of extraneous stuff. For example, there are fire whirls, and they show extreme fire. Is it really important for safety to know how they form? I mean, they can't be predicted. They just need to be recognized as part of the main problem, which is to get the fire under control.
ferenchak 2018-01-08 08:39:53

lesson seemed very trivial and general. most info should be basic training and not present in this level of course. condense the topics to what course is designed towards and stay on the point. more of a review than a training.

jtomastarrago 2017-08-26 11:10:24

I already knew most of the topics in this lesson because in Catalunya Fire Department has quite experience in extrem fire behavior. But anyway I ve fount it quite interesting to enhance my knowledge

The longer segmented units were the hardest to retain the knowledge
Dwayne.Preston@longbeach.gov 2017-04-25 11:20:45

This lesson was very interesting, and improved my understanding of what smoke columns can mean.
jjtravline 2017-04-18 14:21:35

Richboren 2017-04-14 14:56:17

Better pictures of some of the examples in the beginning and an audio narrating some of the clips.
Michelbbnt 2017-04-11 12:59:23

cpepper3 2017-04-06 13:14:23

Showing schematics (or better yet videos with instruction) I think would have been more effective teaching tools than the large amoung of text with largely static pictures of ongoing fires. Schematics could show the wind movement and patterns better even than the existing videos. Breaking the lesson up with fewer paragraphs and more activities would have been good, although the quizzes were helpful. Some of the quiz material seems subjective and not enough information about scenarious was given (e.g. no information was given to tell whether ladder fuels were or were not present, therefore how would an answer on whether they contributed to a crown fire be derived).
cjv0110 2017-04-01 15:05:16

Goducks1984 2017-03-31 00:40:27

Get out of the way when a fire whirl is on its way!
jparker@longviewtexas.gov 2017-01-24 14:48:55

Video and sound needs to be added so it is more of a lecture formate.
