The peaked roof is the most common and dangerous for firefighters. Part 2: Peaked Roof Collapse features analysis and case studies of types of peaked roofs, as well as the construction and types of collapses that can occur. It also covers fire hazard protection, hazard avoidance, roof slope and pitch, and the safety procedures necessary for working on or around peaked roof structures.

In this five-part series, based on his widely-adopted & bestselling text Collapse of Burning Buildings: A Guide to Fireground Safety, Deputy Chief Vincent Dunn shares his experiences and knowledge about size-up, specific collapse types, patterns that occur, warning signs, and dangers inside as well as outside the structure. Discussion questions are presented at the end of the program.

(Originally released on VHS in 1990)
