How does Essentials 7 present the new fire dynamics content? The new Fire Dynamics research from UL-FSRI is the basis for extensive changes in the Fire Dynamics and Ventilation chapters. These chapters tackle the complexities of fire behavior that new knowledge is providing. The information is then applied to structure fires and the effects of fire on buildings. Applying this new science to fire attack means understanding fuel, the stages of fire, the critical need to control the oxygen sources in a fire, and the value of cooling a fire before making entry into a structure. Essentials 7 uses text, photos, illustrations, key terms and plain language to present this content in a format that is easy to understand.
