The world of firefighting undergoes constant change. New materials are created. Building construction techniques change. Firefighters must respond to emergencies in buildings that are hundreds of years old that create a specific set of conditions, and the next moment they have to respond to a modern building with a different set of conditions. This website is designed to prepare the firefighter, company officer and incident commanders with up to date information on fighting fires in modern times. This information has been compiled by firefighting professionals who collected data from a wide variety of relevant areas such as research, training and education, code development and firefighting operations.
