Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Over the past years, firefighting has begun to incoporate science, backed by engineering, including tremendous amounts of hours of research on tactics and fire behavior that have aided the fire service tremendously. Projects such as the work by Madrzykowski & Kerber in their Wind Driven Fire Research have assisted departments across the nation in ventilation tactics. My question for everyone is I want to hear topics/areas that you think need more attention to in terms of research. What do you believe, or rather would like to see technical research and basis behind. Example topics could include fire phenomena, fire ground tactics such as ventilation or hose streams, etc.
