CFPC: 2016 Seminar Series

Seminar Series


For 2016 the very popular Connecticut Fire Academy Seminar Series continues to bring nationally known fire service presenters to Connecticut speaking on current and engaging fire service topics.

The next scheduled Seminar Series titled Using Thermal Imaging and Modern Fire Dynamics to Improve Fireground Operations is scheduled for Friday, June 10, 2016. Registration begins at 0800; the class is scheduled from 0830 to 1630 at the Connecticut Fire Academy. The course number is 16300 and the course fee is $55.00 with lunch included.

The seminar will be presented by Mike Richardson, currently the Division Chief of Training & Safety for the East Jefferson County Fire Protection Districts in Louisville, KY.

In this seminar the speaker will focus on providing fire personnel at all levels with the knowledge they need to combine thermal imaging technology with the latest NIST and UL firefighting research to improve the effectiveness and safety of fireground operations. This will include the review of a large number of thermal imaging photos and videos from fireground operations where key concepts such as vent limited fire behavior, compromised structural integrity, flow path development, and victim survival profiling were in play. Firefighters will ultimately be able to apply thermal imaging in fireground operations with an understanding of both the capabilities and limitations.

Mike Richardson has also taught firefighters in over 38 U.S. States and 8 Countries..

This seminar is appropriate for students of all ranks in the Fire Service.
