Over the past 10-years, significant research has been conducted on firefighting operations, tactics, and service delivery. Studies on how we do business when the bell rings and we roll out of the fire station have been authored and published by NIST, UL FSRI, and the ATF. The results of these studies have driven significant changes in the fire service.
But until 2021, the fire service has been missing out on a huge data set that will be the next significant change in how we do business. NFIRS and other data collection programs focus purely on the negative, lost lives, property loss, firefighter deaths, etc. While we know that we have been saving civilian lives in residential fires all across the nation, Brian Brush is on a mission to prove it through academic research.
Welcome to the 2021 Fireground Civilian Rescue Research Project. Hold onto your seat, because the initial results are already astonishing. County Fire Tactics (CF Tactics, CFT) stands with and backs this initiative by Chief Brush. The final results are going to be HUGE, providing evidence to what we already know, that it’s worth the risk. Firefighter Rescue Survey is the first of its kind, focusing purely on saving lives, our primary mission focus.
CF Tactics extends a special thank you to The Best Western Beachside Resort, Innisfree Hotels, and The Hilton, Pensacola Beach for your continued support of our programs.
Furthermore, County Fire Tactics (CFT, CF Tactics) appreciates the investments made by our sponsors in the professional development and continuing education of firefighters from across the United States right here in Pensacola Beach, Florida. Their contribution to our programs makes a direct impact on the safety and survival of millions of people living in the United States.
