Special Webcast Series – The New Firefight: Implementing the UL-FSRI Study Core Concepts for Interior Residential Fire Attack

This Webcast combines the research and outreach initiatives of the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) and presents curriculum relevant to strategic and tactical decision making and developing best practices for mounting an intelligent interior fire attack. The focus is on identifying the “real estate” between the so-called “aggressive” interior attack and “surround and drown.”

Starting in April 2017, the UL-FSRI team and select fire service educators from across the country have been presenting three-day Fire Dynamics Boot camps in venues across the country during which Steve Kerber and Dan Madrzykowski have lectured on several core concepts arising out of the research on fire dynamics. The instructor uses Kerber’s Core Concepts to lead a discussion on how they can assist participants in developing best practices for mounting intelligent interior fire attacks. At the end of the day, we need to be more “aggressive” than ever before, BUT we must come to a better understanding of what that means and how we can intelligently do so.
