Posted by Ventry Solutions, Inc. on

Ventry Solutions, Inc. is proud to sponsor, from Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC), a webcast for firefighters called “Top 10 Tactical Considerations from Firefighter Research.” Up until September 20, 2018 (give or take a week!), you can watch it on a desktop or tablet, via smart phone, project it to a whole room of people, or even listen to it on that next long drive!

This side-by-side demo precedes the webcast. See also 2-demos-in-5-seconds.

Description: Includes concise, concrete recommendations for firefighting based on the latest positive pressure attack and ventilation (PPA and PPV) and fire attack studies. For years, in partnership with the fire service, the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (UL FSRI) has been studying fire dynamics and firefighting tactics. They have conducted more than two hundred large-scale experiments, studying the changes in fire environments over time, the impact of ventilating ventilation-limited fires, and the implications of flow control and effectiveness in suppression tactics. Firefighters from the USA and around the world have participated. Tactical considerations and common themes have resulted; these studies may warrant a change to your standard operating guidelines.
