UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute adds new videos

 | Published on 10/1/2020

 

Today, the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) released two new videos: a short PSA and a full-length side-by-side home furnishing comparison experiment video. The PSA drives awareness of how little time there is to escape a home fire and urges people to plan ahead by having working smoke alarms, knowing their escape plan, and to #CloseBeforeYouDoze. The other is a new side-by-side burn comparison (to replace the 2009 video) of natural vs. synthetic furnished rooms highlighting how fast fire spreads in today’s fire environment.

We strongly encourage you to visit their project page to view/download these videos and to learn more about UL FSRI recent experiments, what it means for first responders, and what we can all do to better protect ourselves and our families.
