ISFSI and BullEx Partner for Fire Training Opportunity at FDIC

Feb. 22, 2016
BullEx and ISFSI will lead an innovative hands-on training course at FDIC’s annual event dubbed “the HEAT” centered on Principles of Modern Fire Attack.

BullEx, together with the International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) and other leading manufacturers in the fire service, are creating a once-in-a-lifetime training opportunity at this year’s FDIC International (Fire Department Instructors Conference) in Indianapolis, Ind.

As more than 30,000 firefighters from across the globe descend on Indianapolis, BullEx and ISFSI will lead an innovative hands-on training course at FDIC’s annual event dubbed “the HEAT” which centers on Principles of Modern Fire Attack.

Arguably the hottest topic in the fire service industry, “Principles of Modern Fire Attack” highlights the shift in modern fire dynamics and teaches life-saving changes to fire service response techniques.

“Research shows that as the methods and materials used to build and furnish homes has changed over time, so has the impact on how they burn," says says Steve Pegram, ISFSI President. "In the 1970’s, a typical residential living room would become fully engulfed in flames in about 30 minutes. The average room in a modern home can become fully engulfed in five minutes or less. With this new knowledge, we need to change how we attack a fire because our lives, and the lives of the people we are sent to rescue, depend on it."

BullEx, a leading manufacturing of firefighter training equipment, will create a special Class A Fire Training System that is slated to debut at the Heat. This system features BullEx’s signature Smart Class A technology that lets the instructors control and manage fire flowpaths to replicate environments that firefighters often see during modern residential fires.

“We are excited to partner with ISFSI and other vendors to raise awareness about the Principles of Modern Fire Attack," says Christian Lauzier, General Manager at BullEx. "Our sole purpose is to use technology to make fire safety training safer and more effective. We believe our Smart Class A technology easily recreates the fire behavior seen in newer homes and allows instructors to change those conditions on the spot, like switching from a fuel limited to a ventilation limited fire within the same training session."

ISFSI instructors will also give talks on modern fire attack throughout the 3-day event that are open to the public. Registration for the HEAT is free and open to all firefighters attending FDIC.

FDIC International takes place April 18-23, 2016 at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium. Other partners include LION, Rosenbauer, TFT, and Scott Safety.
