The IAFC is excited to invite you to the second annual FRI Research symposium held in collaboration with Oklahoma State University on August 6 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The Research Symposium is being held in conjunction with Fire-Rescue International (FRI), the annual conference and expo of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC). The goal of the Research Symposium is to create a space where researchers and contemporary fire service leaders can interact informally. Researchers will present relevant research in a format that fire service leaders can use to make decisions, write policy or procedures, and have a greater understanding of topics that impact firefighters. In some cases, information learned at the research symposium may be applied at the local level to improve fire service operations. There will be additional opportunities during the conference to highlight your work with your poster presentation in the exhibit hall during FRI. Contact Richard Miller at: firstname.lastname@example.org. To attend please go to Specialty Education Sessions at Register Now
FSTAR and the IAFC will be hosting a Firefighter Memorial Wall and a Firefighter Survival Wall. The walls are a place to post a photo or a name of a firefighter who has dealt with or is currently dealing with job-related health issues.
FSTAR has created a list of additional related materials for training. Fire departments are encouraged to suspend all non-emergency activity during Safety Stand Down in order to focus on training and education related to this year’s theme: “The First 5 Minutes – Stretching the Initial Hose Line, Putting Water on the Fire.”
The Boston Fire Department, in conjunction with the International Association of Fire Fighters and Local 718, is hosting a two-day symposium May 19-20 to address occupational health and safety issues in the fire service.
This is a success story of the Houston Fire Department using research to change culture, behaviors, and fireground operations. By better understanding fire dynamics research the department has changed the way they approach fires. This webinar will provide a before and after comparison of risk behaviors. Through training Houston has been successful in the implementation of these practices.
The Branford Fire Department, in association with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) present a Firefighter Safety Through Advanced Research (FSTAR) Townhall.
The Brighton Area Fire Authority, in association with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) present a Firefighter Safety Through Advanced Research (FSTAR) Townhall.
The townhall is a free one-day training event focused on modern fire behavior research, science and the tactical considerations that can be used to reduce risk to firefighters operating on structure fires.
The Oakland Fire Department, San Francisco Fire Department and San Jose Fire Department are partnering with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) to present FSTAR Townhalls.
FSTAR is partnering with researchers and experts to answer your questions at Fire-Rescue International. Please stop by any of these events to learn more about FSTAR. If you are not attending FRI, send us your questions via Twitter @FSTAR_Research or email to email@example.com.
