Fire Engineering On-Scene at Deadly Interface Fires

MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma
Only Fire Engineering traveled to Midwest City Oklahoma to report firsthand on the incredible fires which challenged Fire Departments across Oklahoma and Texas. Hundreds of families are now homeless and whole communities have been charred by deadly, wind-driven wildfires.
See FETV-On Scene report and read how these communities fared when faced by a perfect fire storm. The event sadly drives home several key issues, the interface is everywhere, staffing is critical to success, more study is desperately needed on wind driven flame fronts, codes are critical and money is need to equip and train every department in America now. I think pig stink can wait; public safety is suffering from a pathetic lack of attention. We read the stimulus bill we read the budget, and the fire service has to be screaming “Where’s the Beef?”
