Training Guides

Applying Fire Research to Structural Firefighting

This training guide contains some of the most important firefighting research and analysis done in the past 50 years. Steve Kerber provides an insightful overview of the most significant research undertaken by Underwriters Laboratories, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and several other agencies. Also included is application of this research to the complex and dangerous work of structural firefighting. This research can make firefighting more efficient and effective and how tactics can affect fire behavior and survivability. This guide will enhance firefighters’ abilities and decision-making capabilities by providing a greater array of options for conducting life-saving operations and property saving operations.
