Is your agency putting any restrictions on outside training? If so, what are they? How will you plan to acquire CEs moving forward?

On this day in 2003, the Station Nightclub fire occurred in West Warwick, Rhode Island, killing 100 people and injuring 230. Pyrotechnics from the band on stage, Great White, ignited nearby walls and ceilings and the fire spread rapidly. The blaze reached flash-over within one minute. Immediately, more than two-thirds of the 400-plus individuals in attendance turned and started for the main entrance. But the intensity of the flames and smoke caused the crowd to panic and surge forward, everyone pushing for the front door. Individuals fell, causing others to fall and, in less than 90 seconds, the front door was completely blocked.

Because of the building's age and size, many believed the Station to be exempt from sprinkler system requirements. In fact, the building had undergone an occupancy change when it was converted from a restaurant to a nightclub. This change dissolved its exemption from the law, a fact that West Warwick fire inspectors never noticed. On the night in question, the Station was legally required to have a sprinkler system but did not. However, a fire sprinkler system may have contained the fire long enough to give everyone time to exit safely.

In addition to the club being overcapacity, numerous violations of existing codes contributed to the calamity, triggering an immediate effort to strengthen fire code protections. Within weeks of the disaster, changes to the code for "assembly occupancies” were issued for the national standard "Life Safety Code.” This required automatic fire sprinklers in all nightclubs and similar locations with 100 or more occupants, plus additional crowd manager personnel, and additional exit requirements for new nightclub occupancies, among other things.

Fire Extinguisher at work! 🧯

At a business here in Carrollton recently, a laptop exploded and caught fire. As you can see in the video - quick thinking employees reacted by grabbing a fire extinguisher and put the fast growing fire out! We are glad that minimal damage occurred to the work station and no injuries occurred in this incident. CFR reminds the community to call 911 immediately, should they find themselves in a situation such as this one.

The cause is of unknown origin; however, you may follow the link for general safety tips for electronic power cords.

Carrollton Fire Rescue shares this video to demonstrate why knowing how and when to properly use a fire extinguisher is so important. If you are interested in having Carrollton Fire Rescue come give your business or organization Hands-On Fire Extinguisher training contact us at 972-466-4901 or [email protected]

Every Fire Investigator Needs This Book Scientific Protocols for Fire Investigation was recently identified by the BookAuthority as one of the top 70 forensic science books of all time. It came in at number six, ahead of any other fire investigation books. This is a book you need to read. https://bookauthority.org/books/best-forensic-science-books Fire litigation has changed tremendously over the last decade, as lawyers became aware of NFPA 1033 and its requirements for up-to-date knowledge. Qualifications challenges are becoming common, and the last thing any fire investigator needs is to be caught flat-footed in a deposition or trial. The Third Edition of this book contains many new drawings and new case studies and is available in softcover to keep the cost down. Still, it contains more than 600 color photographs and drawings. The book is available at the Firefighters Bookstore. You owe it to yourself and to the people you serve to upgrade your fire investigation knowledge. https://www.firebooks.com/products/scientific-protocols-for-fire-investigation-3rd-edition?_pos=8&_sid=3b6cfbbf2&_ss=r
