The Illinois Fire Service Institute has led a series of trailblazing projects with UL’s Firefighter Safety Research Institute and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health to study the cardiovascular and chemical exposure risks on today’s fireground and training ground. This webinar will guide you through the key lessons-learned from this project that focus on the firefighter’s thermal response to firefighting activities in residential structure fires. In particular, we will discuss the impact of different fireground job assignments as well as suppression tactics.
