The April meeting of MIFDI will be held on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 hosted by the Brookline Fire Department courtesy of Chief Paul Ford and Deputy Chief James Corbett of the Brookline Fire Department Training Division. We will meet in the Training Division classroom in the basement level of Fire Station 6, 962 Hammond St. We last met in Brookline in June 2011.
Our training will be provided by Dave Gallagher with an interesting presentation on FireIce Solutions followed by a live fire demonstration in the drill yard. FireIce is a new generation fire suppression agent that acts as a force multiplier by enhancing the capability of water. When mixed with water, FireIce helps break the fire triangle by creating a dense oxygen barrier and supercharges the cooling effect.
