Virtual Visitor Day – Study of Fire Service Residential Home Size-Up and Search & Rescue Operations
You are invited to attend our Virtual Visitor Day on Saturday, November 21 that will be live-streamed on YouTube.
A highlight of our full-scale experiments is Visitor’s Day, when we get to interact with so many fire service professionals. Unfortunately, the global pandemic has led to a change in plans. To comply with the UL COVID-19 Safety Playbook, our Visitor Day will now be virtual.
About the Experiments:
UL's Fire Safety Research Institute (FSRI) is conducting a series of 20 full-scale, live-fire experiments as part of our AFG supported research project Study of Fire Service Residential Home Size-Up and Search & Rescue Operations. The experiments are being conducted in two, identical, purpose-built residential structures constructed at the Delaware County (PA) Emergency Services Training Center. Each structure was designed to represent an approximately 1400 sq. ft. home with four bedroom, two baths, and an open-concept kitchen and living room. See a plan view of the test structure below.

Schedule is subject to change depending on weather conditions and if there are connection issues with the live-stream, the recording will be available after the experiment. Continue to follow us on Social Media for updates.
