For the past three years the FSRI team has worked closely with 24 firefighters from around the country in support of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program funded project, Study of Coordinated Fire Attack Utilizing Acquired Structures.

The Technical Panel contributed in the design of 40 full-scale experiments conducted in single-family homes, garden-style apartments, and strip mall units, the review of 3 technical reports, and the development of 22 tactical considerations through numerous in-person meetings, conference calls, emails, and time on the experimental fireground with the primary goal of helping to improve the effectiveness of the fire service. We cannot thank the panel members enough for the time, effort, and expertise they have put into the project and look forward to continue to work with them as we develop the on-line training compliments to the reports.
