UL-FSRI Coordinated Fire Attack Roundtable

Course Description:

Join UL-FSRI researcher, Keith Stakes and three technical panel members from Colorado for a roundtable. We will begin with an overview of UL-FSRI’s history and information from previous studies. Then listen to technical panel members discuss how we have used UL-FSRI’s research in our departments and how their studies have evolved over the years. We will wrap up with some size-ups and conversations on fires. From how the Fire Chief can develop department culture to how the firefighter makes decisions on the fireground, we all have different roles and ways of interrupting UL-FSRI’s data. We may not always agree, but by having these conversations and discussing fire, we can improve our fireground operations.

This roundtable will begin with an overview of UL-FSRI’s previous studies and how we got involved in the research. Then learn how technical panels assist in the development of the experiments and publishing of the report. The bulk of the presentation will focus on the tactical considerations from the report and how each rank can interpret the data and use it to improve their organization. We’ll wrap up with real-world applications on fires.
