Fire Blog Roundup: Door Control, Balloon Frame Construction, and More

Fire dynamics, a mainstay in fire service blogosphere discussions, was addressed by our bloggers this week in two aspects: P.J. Norwood discussed methods for short-staffed companies to effectively control the door, while Joe Pronesti discusses fire spread in balloon-frame construction and reflected on a multi-line-of-duty death fire in such a building.

In addition, “Chief Reason” Art Goodrich posted the first installment of his firefighter fiction series, “The Adventures of Jake and Vinnie©.”

If you’ve got a comment for any of these writers, or want to write a blog commentary yourself, simply log in to the Fire Engineering Training Community at http://community.fireengineering.com.
