Underwriters Laboratories Fire Safety Research Institute (UL FSRI) sponsored and operated a first of its kind water mapping prop at CF Tactics Water On The Fire Conference in August of 2021.
The UL FSRI prop brings the laboratory right to the attendees at our conferences. In the words of Eklhart Brass, “Just Because Water is Coming Out Doesn’t Mean You’re Doing it Right.”
Keith Stakes & Mike Alt, Water Mapping Prop Lecture & Demo
Special thanks to Steve Kerber, Keith Stakes, Jennifer Williams, Michael Alt, and Philip Gilman for their work to make this possible and educating hundreds of attendees at WOFC 2021, and future CFT Conferences.
Please continue reading to the bottom of this post. We have included a lot of great training content either as a review of lessons learned at WOFC, or as preparation for your use of this prop in December 2021 and February 2022.
A link to the UL Fire Safety Academy is available in the menu bar right here on CFT under our Training Articles & Links section.
The proper application of water was summed up best by the late Andy Fredericks. The fire “goes as the first line “goes”.
Why is Water Mapping important?
UL Statement on Water Mapping
“Understanding this fundamental principle of water dispersion can aid firefighters in understanding how to apply their water during fire suppression operations most effectively.”
