Multiple collisions with minor injuries to motorists and passengers were blamed on smoky haze that settled over the highway for about five hours. Authorities closed I-40 for hours to prevent more accidents. (Arizona Department of Public Safety via AP)
Over the years, we have created firefighters who are driven by policy, and our training has become protocol based in an effort to conform to industry standards and, quite honestly, to train a large number of firefighters with limited fire duty.
The NFFF will direct proceeds from FLIR’s sponsorship to fund programs that honor the fallen, assist their survivors and aid in the prevention of future line-of-duty deaths and injuries by delivering more thermal imaging cameras (TICs) to more firefighters on the line.
Close Your Door comes as the result of over 10 years of research by the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI). After proving that a closed door could potentially save lives in a fire, UL FSRI has committed to share this finding with the world.
