F.I.E.R.O PPE Symposium: Fire Fighting Operational Thermal Environment
Fire Fighting Operational Thermal Environment
Presenter: Dr. Daniel Madrzykowski, Research Engineer, UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute
This presentation will help you understand the negative effects of elevated temperatures exposure on the performance of fire fighter gear and learn how NFPA standards are being developed and modified to address these issues. Participants will also gain knowledge of the testing methods and apparatus used by NIST researchers for fire equipment investigations in support of these standards.
