Fire Ops 101

Three members of the Burn and Surgical Research Team were fortunate to participate in a recent session of “Fire Ops 101” offered by the International Association of Firefighters and the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation. The event took place on October 25th at the Washington DC Fire & EMS Training Academy. Fireground simulations were demonstrated and participants were able to don turnout gear and run through the simulations. Local, regional, and national policy makers were in attendance. Brittany Hamilton (Clinical Research Coordinator), Naser Alkhalil (Scientist), and Nick Prindeze (Research Associate) participated to gain a better understanding of what firefighters experience in the field.
