The Washington DCFD and UL’s Fire Safety Research Institute are co-hosting an ONLINE symposium for fire service members interested in learning more about lithium-ion battery risks during fire incidents. Featured speakers include members of the FDNY and other departments, NTSB, IAFF, IAFC and Metro Chiefs as well as FSRI and other UL researchers.

This online event will help you understand lithium-ion battery technology, the hazards these batteries pose during fire incidents, and how you should operate at incidents caused by battery failure.

Due to high demand, and the in-person seats all filled, UL has added this livestream option to be able to share this information with a larger audience. Register for the livestream to this event to hear firsthand from researchers and practitioners.
