Seminars & Conferences

The primary focus of this program is to deliver required “Annual Fire School Seminars.” Scheduled regionally throughout Kansas, these seminars bring “keynote quality presentations” into a one-day seminar format. Speakers are typically nationally recognized experts in the topics and the seminar format allows a full day to expand their presentations into a full day. This highly successful format allows exceptional quality seminars to be delivered to over 500 firefighters per year.

This program also assists fire service organizations to deliver special, “one-time” conferences and short courses for a diverse fire service audience. The Institute cooperates and collaborates with many organizations in the delivery of these events

Courses & Events

This presentation will provide firefighters 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.
Experiments were conducted during the summer of 2017 in a test fixture that represents a single family home with a basement. From the experiments, ISFSI will develop training modules that will be available to firefighters across the country. This project is supported with a DHS/FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant.
