Video from UL Tests

Chief Bobby Halton shared video from today’s fire dynamics tests being conducted by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).

He joined a number of other fire service members Monday at the UL testing facility in Northbrook, Illinois, to observe some live burns being conducted to further our understanding of how ventilation affects fire behavior.
