Available now, these Underwriters Laboratories' (UL) Fire Safety Research Institute courses are focused on coordinated ventilation and suppression tactics for structure fires.
Each course focuses on a unique occupancy type, covering:
- The science of fire dynamics.
- The findings from the experiments in the Study of Coordinated Fire Attack Utilizing Acquired Structures (Coordinated Fire Attack Study), a UL research study supported by an Assistance to Firefighters Grant.
- Tactical considerations for that occupancy type.
The 3 courses are:
This course, created in collaboration with the Fairborn (Ohio) Fire Department, is supported by 7 experiments in 4 units of a 12-unit acquired strip mall that was slated for demolition.
This course, created in coordination with the Cobb County (Georgia) Fire and Emergency Services Department and Atlanta Fire Rescue, is supported by 13 experiments in 4 separate 3-story, garden-style buildings.
This course, created in collaboration with City of Sidney (Ohio) Fire Department and the Beavercreek Township (Ohio) Fire Department, is supported by 20 experiments in 8 acquired, single-family residential structures.
