Providing freely accessible, science-based training to firefighters
As the fire environment continues to evolve and increase challenges for the fire service, training is more important than ever before. The FSRI Fire Safety Academy provides access to an online learning management system that effectively brings fire research knowledge to the streets in a free, easy, user-friendly way.
“Everything about firefighting is science. It is so much more than just applying water, breaking windows, and rescuing people. The more that the fire service can learn about fire dynamics and how their tactics impact the fire, the more effective their tactical decisions will become. This can enable them to solve the fire problem safer and more efficiently, which in the end can save more lives. With that in mind, we have developed the FSRI Fire Safety Academy, a new online learning management system equipped with numerous training courses designed for real-world application.”
