Women in Fire is presenting a free virtual conference on November 18, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CST.
The time has come to stop arguing over what we call something and put our energy into learning the “when” and “how” to effectively apply water to our firegrounds in the quickest way possible, writes P.J. Norwood and Nick J. Salameh.
Science plays an important role in helping us understand the evolving fireground. Firefighters would be wise to consider the modern fire science studies and to understand the meanings of their words in their proper context, writes Nick Salameh.
Dr. Jamie L. McAllister and Brian McAllister present research on a proposed continuing-education program to maintain firefighters' skill proficiency.
There is a wealth of published evidence out there that PFAS are insidious toxins in many ways, and their use to make turnout gear waterproof should be re-examined.
Science has evolved to be able to explore modern fire dynamics like never before. Nick Salameh offers his thoughts on why more firefighters aren't making use of the research.
Thanks to groundbreaking research, we know now that firefighter personal protective equipment (PPE) contains toxic forever chemicals. Now what do we do about it? P.J. Norwood and Frank Ricci offer some thoughts.
A release from Notre Dame News examined new research that found "forever chemicals" in turnout gear poses a risk to firefighters.
The UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) has released a new research report, “Analysis of the Coordination of Suppression and Ventilation in Multi-Family Dwellings.”
If not applied in appropriate flow rate, nozzle pattern and location, suppression streams may not reach the source of the fire and/or result in the generation of excess steam, potentially endangering occupants of the structure and the firefighter themselves.
