Pay attention to the UL fire service training modules

Josh’s post about our enemy changing brings up an important point.  The fire service in general has failed to notice just how drastically things have changed. Last summer at FRI I attended a number of panels that presented research from UL and the Chicago Fire Department. It was really quite breathtaking how quickly flashover occurs in newer homes and how quickly lightweight construction collapses. I knew the answer to both was “faster than it used to” but I had no idea HOW fast.

Do yourself, your firefighters, and their families a favor and check out some of the UL’s excellent training modules.
