Where firefighters come to talk training

The International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) today posted a new video summary of the Principles of Modern Fire Attack: SLICE-RS method of fire suppression at  

Created with funding from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through an Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG), this update to its previous introductory video, that one first posted just over a year ago and viewed (as of today) by 93,225 persons, provides additional explanations and examples for implementing this innovative firefighting approach.  

Recognizing that PMFA:SLICE-RS is offered by ISFSI as an 8-hour class (provided free of charge, also courtesy of the DHL/AFG), and condensing that amount of material into a series of video clips lasting just over 33 minutes has obvious limitations, the Society was successful in the time allotted in addressing many of the questions and concerns that those of us trained in “traditional” firefighting methods have raised when confronted with this research-based technique.  

If enough in the fire service view and embrace the concepts and practices in these videos, they might just take away my purpose for blogging.
