Columbia College Flashover Chamber

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project is a flashover chamber to be used for firefighter training at Columbia College in Tuolumne County. The flashover chamber consists of a metal cargo container. Wood will be burned inside the container to simulate flashover conditions in a structure fire. Approximately 100 gallons of water will be required to extinguish the fire at the end of the exercise. The container will be placed in an existing gravel parking lot. The container will not be near any watercourses, and it is unlikely that water used to extinguish the fires will deliver sediment or ash to a watercourse.
