The risks we face as firefighters are constantly evolving on both the fireground and in the training scenarios designed to help prepare us for the daily emergency responses. The training ground is undergoing a rapid evolution as we look to improve the training firefighters receive to better prepare for today’s fireground. In an on-going series of project between IFSI Research, UL FSRI and NIOSH, we have developed a deeper understanding of the chemical and thermal exposure risks associated with fire training activities.
This webcast will review the critical results from those efforts with a focus on the impact of fuel type used during training evolutions. We will discuss differences in risks for firefighter students and fire instructors in the context of high-fidelity training that can appropriately prepare firefighters for today’s fireground.
