UL FSRI DHS 2015 Coordinated Fire Attack Advisory Panel Selected
Robin Zevotek
August 2, 2017

We would like to thank the 200+ firefighters that submitted an application to serve on the advisory panel for the “Study of Coordinated Attack in Acquired Structures”. Everyone that applied was highly qualified and very passionate which made the selection process very difficult. Members were selected based on fire service experience, geography, department size, and department type. The individuals on the list below were selected and will be notified with additional information. Additional input and guidance for this project will also be provided by the UL FSRI Advisory Board. Those that applied and were not selected are encouraged to provide input to those selected from their region and will be given priority to witness any testing that is opened to the fire service.
