This class will provide a firsthand look at the UL/NIST Modern Fire Behavior/Dynamics studies and serve to educate students how they can be delivered and instituted in their fire departments. It is our hope that by compiling the best lessons learned from the fire dynamics research, fire departments will be able to adjust their policies, tactics and training to create a safer environment for the fire service as well as the people we serve in our communities.

This information has been known to be controversial to some, so be prepared for great discussions.  You don’t have to look far for good discussion regarding fire command, control, accountability and especially fire behavior. The shared science, research and best practices are another tool for your toolbox!  Go home to your department with a renewed outlook and with a healthy knowledge of the Principles of Modern Fire Attack: SLICE-RS.

This program is NOT a Train-the-Trainer.  The delivery is funded by AFG and the Department of Homeland Security.  Its intended audience is chief officers, instructors, company officers & firefighters. This class introduces modern fire behavior and changes to fire attack within the profession based on research findings.
