Fire Dynamics and Your Fireground

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Fire Behavior

This class will show the symbiotic mutualistic relationship between fire dynamics and the fireground. It’s a detailed approach of how fireground tactics and tasks affect fire dynamics. Attendees will be shown the relationship between fire dynamics and the fireground tactics through an interactive video-based discussion. The goal of firefighter safety research is to allow firefighters to become smarter, safer, and more efficient on the fireground. The goal of this class is to bridge the gap between the science and the streets.
