UL is working with the New York City Fire Department and the National Institute of Standards and Technology to advance firefighter safety. Through an unprecedented series of live burn experiments designed to replicate conditions in the modern home, firefighters will be able to better predict and react to the effects that new materials and construction have on fire.
Learn more about the Governors Island fire experiments by reading the press release or by requesting an interview with an expert from our technical panel.
