This presentation will provide firefighters with the knowledge they need to combine thermal imaging technology with the latest NIST and UL firefighting research to improve the effectiveness and safety of fireground operations.
Training will include the review of a large number of thermal imaging photos and videos from fireground operations where key concepts such as vent limited fire behavior, compromised structural integrity, flow path development, and victim survival profiling were in play. Firefighters will ultimately be able to apply thermal imaging in fireground operations with an understanding of both the capabilities and limitations.
