Evidence-Based Practices For Strategic And Tactical Firefighting

Evidence-Based Practices for Strategic and Tactical Firefighting is a synopsis of the UL/NIST research studies and experiments on fire behavior and techniques for ventilation, fire suppression, and search and rescue as a result of the changes in modern building construction and furnishing materials. As a result of these changes, today’s fires release energy faster, reach flashover potential sooner, may reach higher temperatures, and are much more likely to become ventilation-limited than building fires of even a few years ago. Developed in partnership with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Evidence-Based Practices for Strategic and Tactical Firefighting details many of the findings discovered as the result of an ongoing series of experiments conducted by NIST, UL, and the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and provides the most up-to-date information available today for Fire Fighter, Fire Officer, and Fire Science students. Additional information about these ¬and other fire experiments can be obtained online at the NIST website by searching under Fire¬ Fighting Technology and at the UL website by searching under Fire¬ Fighter Safety Research Institute.

For once something in the fire service is based upon science and evidence instead of ego and tradition. Even so, despite the weight of this study, I think it will take time to be accepted as tactics described go against the flow of "aggressive interior firefighting". This book provides a solid wealth of information to the progressive, forward thinking and secure firefighter/fire officer to consider and employ to do the most with what they have while keeping operating personnel safe.

Good informational research but not enough. Should have never put out a book this small, only 16 pages. Not worth the money, just wait for the all the data to be compiled.

It worked out very well for my online Fire Tech Class.
