Here is the latest in reading smoke as a strategic, tactical, and task-level skill. Like any skill, reading smoke improves with practice. Integrated use of live incidents, recent scientific data, as well as “best practices” continue to renew the reading smoke curriculum. Highlights include a new look at the combinations of volume, velocity, density, and color; street-read clarifications/additions; and the solving of the “Volume Paradox.” Whether you are new to the reading smoke topic or a longtime practitioner, improved decision making relies on the cues and clues available in reading smoke.
