The Boston Fire Department, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are partnering to present a FSTAR Townhall.
The townhall is a 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.

Each session is open to the fire service at no cost to the attendee. Lunch for both days will be provided courtesy of the Gary Sinise Foundation.
