Exterior and Interior Attack - What's the Difference?
UL FSRI has completed a first-of-its-kind project focused solely on the potential impact of using interior and exterior fire streams on victims and firefighters. The three main experiment components of the study were air entrainment, water distribution, and a full-scale fire. The project culminated with a series of live-fire experiments to determine the interaction of hose streams with the modern fire environment. These studies were guided by a technical panel of firefighters from across the country. The UL FSRI and technical panel members on the Federal Emergency Management Agency/Assistance to Firefighters Grant supported fire suppression studies will share highlights from the studies. Bring your questions for the panel. The fire service has been involved in the creation of the research objectives intended to answer their lingering questions. The answers to these questions have been formed into tactical considerations readily adoptable by the fire service.
