"Surviving the Insult” and Interior Benchmarking for Safer Interior Fireground Operations (Multi Year FDIC Programs)

Making educated decisions in today's hostile fire environment is critical for firefighter health and safety. In this class, we will discuss UL and NIST's recent fire dynamics studies, take an in depth look at thermal imager interpretation for greater decision making capabilities and take a strong look at how our PPE actually provides protection from thermal insult. Through a working relationship with PPE manufacturers, we will look at damaged turnout gear that suffered heat insult. This class will provide the attendee with a good understanding of modern fire dynamics, flow path considerations, and provide information on why today's firefighters are experiencing bad things during rapid fire growth.

Using our proven (5) step situational awareness model called "Interior Benchmarking" we will show your firefighters how to better benchmark the interior conditions as they operate on the inside with 5 (easy to remember) questions: What do I see? What do I hear? What do I feel? Where exactly am I? and How long did it take to get here? The interior benchmarking model provides the user with information to be compared throughout the operation and thus make educated decisions on "Go and No Go" tactics. Bad things happen to good firefighters every day because most are not prepared for the environment they are expected to work in.
