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:
Impact of Ventilation on Strip Mall Fires
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.
Coordination of Suppression and Ventilation in Multi-Family Dwellings
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.
Coordination of Suppression and Ventilation in Single-Family Homes
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.
