Learn all about our free resources, keys to a great social media campaign, and how you can plan for transitioning back to in person/hybrid learning. Get key updates on smoke and CO alarm technology, proper messaging, and learn new ideas on how to reach the deaf and hard of hearing community with this year’s key messages.

Traditional and Particulate-Blocking Firefighter Hoods: Pros, Cons, and Trade-Offs
Wednesday, Wednesday, August 4, 12:30-2 p.m. ET
Bryan Ormond, PhD, North Carolina State University
This webinar will present the findings from a DHS FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant funded research study, led by North Carolina State University’s Textile Protection and Comfort Center (TPACC), on developing a system-level methodology for evaluating protective hood materials and designs for trade-offs between protection (particulate and flashfire), comfort, durability, and situational awareness. Firefighter exposure to chemicals through head, face, and neck demonstrates vulnerable body regions for exposure.
