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.
Host Danny Sheridan and FDNY Deputy Chief Frank Leeb talk to Craig Weinschenk and Keith Stakes from UL FSRI about the latest experiments on gases.
Both rooms were ignited by a small open flame replicating common causes of furnishing ignition sources.
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.
UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) today released a report detailing a deflagration incident at a 2.16 MWh lithium-ion battery energy storage system (ESS) facility in Surprise, Arizona.
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.”
Investigating the flow rate and distribution of water needed to prevent flashover in residential fire scenarios.
Join Pete Van Dorpe for a Webcast on strategic and tactical concepts for conducting an intelligent interior fire attack at residential fires.
Expanding on previous research to understand the impact of coordinated suppression and ventilation during a commercial strip mall fire.
Ongoing fire dynamics research is challenging long-held firefighting tenets. Daniel Sheridan compares what he was taught as a new firefighter in 1986 in light of fire dynamics research regarding ventilation and water application.
