NFPA “Not For Practical Application”

You can’t make this up.

This is from the NFPA, now we need a standard on tactics. All this will do is get every fire department sued if you deviate from the standard. This is gone to far, how can a committee put us in a box on making decisions on the fire ground. But they know whats best for us, they have no idea of what can of worms they are opening. I urge all of you to keep an eye on this!!

Dear Chief Dyer:
I am transmitting to you herewith the following action of the Standards Council (August 17-19, 2015):
At the April 2015 Standard Council Meeting, the Council considered the request of Richard Dyer, Kansas City, Missouri, that NFPA establish a new project to develop techniques and methods used in firefighting based on accepted scientific principles and research in the field of fire dynamics. The Council voted to solicit public comments.
At this meeting, the Council reviewed all of the material presented and voted to establish the Technical Committee (TC) on Fundamentals of Fire Control within a Structure Utilizing Fire Dynamics and approved the Committee scope. Once the Technical Committee develops and ballots a draft document (see Regulations 4.3.2.1), the Technical Committee may then make a request to the Council to enter an appropriate revision cycle.
APPROVED COMMITTEE TITLE: Committee on Fundamentals of Fire Control within a Structure Utilizing Fire Dynamics
APPROVED COMMITTEE SCOPE: This Committee shall have primary responsibility for documents relating to techniques and methods used in firefighting based on accepted scientific principles and research in the field of fire dynamics.
Kerry M. Bell, Chair, recused himself from the deliberations and vote on this issue. Very truly yours,
Linda Fuller, Senior Manager, Standards Operations Codes and Standards Administration

Container Experience

I recently learned (Toto pulled the curtain back) a fire service member that contributed a great deal to one of the most popular fire service training manuals has never actually fought a fire outside of a ConEx box (metal fire training building). So does that mean that we need to question the credibility of the editors? The answer is YES. Trust but verify seems to be the way to go.
