From UL’s FSRI:
Check out our newly released report on the “Exploratory Analysis of the Impact of Ventilation on Strip Mall Fires.” Access the report here: https://s.ul.org/2RCxzdi
The purpose of this study is to increase fire service knowledge of fire dynamics and the impact of firefighting tactics through a better understanding of how suppression and ventilation are coordinated on the fireground in acquired commercial structures.
This report provides a fire dynamics analysis of each experiment, a discussion of ventilation and pressure, and tactical considerations developed with the project technical panel.
Thanks to the City of Fairborn, Ohio – Municipal Government Fire Department for their support in aquiring these structures and providing suppression crews. Project funded by the Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighters Grant program. Online training to follow! #ULFSRIFairborn
