The search tactics in this experiment include operations initiated through the bedroom 2 and bedroom 3 windows prior to suppression.
UL conducted a series of experiments on fires to find out how ventilation influences the fire pattern.
This course consolidates decades of research and experience from the fireground to provide tactical considerations that can be incorporated into Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs) to improve both firefighter safety and occupant survivability.
While new PPE designs and the effect of laundering on those fabrics has been evaluated through laboratory testing, there are still concerns around the lack of full garment protection.
Both rooms were ignited by a small open flame replicating common causes of furnishing ignition sources.
There is concern that damage from repeated cleaning may impact critical protection on the fireground risk.
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 "Analysis of the Coordination of Suppression and Ventilation in Multi-Family Dwellings" report provides fire dynamics analysis of each experiment.
Experiments occurred in four three-story garden-style apartment buildings.
The objective of this study is to optimize the flow rate and distribution of water needed to prevent flashover in a residential fire scenario.
