假日季节充满了火灾的危险。

从干枯的圣诞树到过载的电路,在人们意识可能处于低谷的季节,这种危险是很高的。消防部门很好地向市民传达这些危险。在家庭和企业防火方面,社交媒体比以往任何时候都更容易传播“好习惯信息”。

看看统计数字

在人们意识可能处于低谷的季节,危险是很高的

根据最新统计数据,根据NFPA应用研究,消防部门每年响应平均每年160个家庭火灾,从圣诞树开始。照明设备的电气分配涉及44%的家庭圣诞树火灾,另外25%是由某种类型的热源引起的,例如蜡烛太近树。

除了圣诞树,美国火灾部门每年响应了每年780个家庭结构的平均射击,这些火灾开始于圣诞装饰品(2013年至2017年,根据NFPA应用研究)。平均而言,每天报告22个家庭蜡烛火灾,两个高峰日为蜡烛火灾是圣诞节和圣诞节前夕。大约10%的烟花火灾发生在12月30日和1月3日之间,在新的一年的高峰期。

来自美国消防局的帮助

美国消防局提供一系列假期,蜡烛和圣诞树外展示材料,以使消防部门能够提高社区中假日火灾的认识。社交媒体工具包包含内容,该内容可以轻松地分享Twitter,Facebook或其他社交媒体渠道。可以复制或定制内容以达到任何受众。

来自美国火灾管理的消息,该部门可以在社交媒体平台上分享:

  • 一年中最常点燃蜡烛的三天是圣诞节、元旦和除夕。
  • 居民应该只使用具有阻燃或不易燃的装饰。
  • 每年都要检查节日灯是否有磨损或过度磨损。
  • 应该挂钩三股假日灯的限制。
  • 燃烧的蜡烛不应无人看管。电池驱动的无焰蜡烛是一个更安全的选择。
  • 圣诞树应远离热源和房间出口。
  • 每天给圣诞树浇水可以防止它变得干燥易燃。
必须小心确保节日庆典不会以财产和/或生命损失为代价

必须注意确保节日的庆祝活动不会以财产和/或生命的损失为代价。在这个与家人共度时光十分珍贵的季节,防火可以减轻消防员的负担。火灾悲剧的悲伤,尤其是在节日期间,是无法忍受的。假期也是一个适当的时间来感谢各部门和其他消防专业人员为预防和扑灭火灾所做的努力。

2020审查:野火的破坏性,并展望未来
2020审查:野火的破坏性,并展望未来

野火代表火的致命破坏性的极端情况。似乎有更多的野火每年,当然也有更大,更致命的野火遍布世界比以往任何时候。野火主导的最火的极端后果公众的看法。这2020回头会介绍一些有关TheBigRedGuide.com野火发表的文章,链接到全长的原创文章。11美国西部野火季节各州慢于去年开始了。在本赛季的前半部分,在北极地区的野火达到了新的水平,特别是在阿拉斯加和西伯利亚。较大的火种燃烧的野火在西部打死160人,造成损坏$ 40十亿在过去的两年中,根据国家中心的环境信息。发展趋势是较大的火种燃烧更英亩 - 尤其是在年中的温暖。早在2020年,澳大利亚是野火灾难的震中。持续高温和干旱加剧了森林大火,也有过在每个澳大利亚州的火灾,虽然新南威尔士州已重灾区。 Strong winds have spread smoke and fire rapidly and led to fatalities. Big cities like Melbourne and Sydney have been affected; large fires have damaged homes in the outer suburbs and smoke has destroyed air quality in urban areas. Whole towns have been engulfed in flames. Active wildfire season Another cause of recent wildfires was lightning with more than 10,000 lightning strikes sparking 376 fires In the context of wildfires, even seemingly minor events can have a very large impact. For example, an explosion of blue-colored smoke on Sept. 5, 2020, in Yucalpa, California, was the beginning of a large wildfire in El Dorado Ranch Park. The pyrotechnic device was essentially a smoke bomb designed to send plumes of pink or blue smoke rising into the air, designating the gender of an expected baby. Another cause of recent wildfires was lightning with more than 10,000 lightning strikes sparking 376 fires on Aug 16 and 17, 2020. The global pandemic presented complications for firefighters during what will the active wildfire season. Firefighting manpower could be diminished by the pandemic; training sessions have been canceled, postponed, or conducted remotely. And travel risks undermine the traditional approach of calling on firefighters from throughout the country or around the world to help fight the wildfires. Addressing forest management Social distancing is at odds with the teamwork and camaraderie that characterize firefighting units. Communal basecamps where everyone eats and sleeps together are unworkable during the pandemic. Instead, smaller camps are the rule, and packaged meals are delivered to each camp. Smaller teams reduce the need for widespread quarantine if someone tests positive for the novel coronavirus. Drones are a tool to address forest management and wildfire prevention. Drones are finding multiple uses when it comes to fighting and preventing wildfires. One application is to drop self-igniting ‘dragon eggs’ that spark smaller fires to trim back overgrown forests and help prevent more destructive megafires. The dragon egg system is made up of self-igniting plastic spheres – about the size of a ping-pong ball. Dragon eggs have been an industry standard for years, usually dropped from planes or helicopters. Burnable plant material Researchers are looking to apply new approaches in address the risk of wildfires The spheres are filled with potassium permanganate powder and injected with glycol as an igniter just as they are being dropped. The reaction sets the balls ablaze after about 30 seconds, which is enough time for them to bounce to the ground through a forest canopy. Researchers are looking to apply new approaches in address the risk of wildfires. They include tools such as deep learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to better understand wildfires and to control their intensity. The model could be used to reveal areas of greatest risk for wildfires. A new deep learning model uses remote sensing and satellite data to trace fuel moisture levels across 12 Western states, in effect tracking the amount of easily burnable plant material and how dry it is. Damaging impacts of wildfires Science shows clearly that the way to reduce the damaging impacts of wildfires and threats to life and property is to proactively manage ecosystems that evolved with fire. This means reintroducing fire in the right ways and places combined with mimicking the effects of fire on forest structure through mechanical treatments. “Rocky Mountain Research Station's Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program (RMRS) focuses on the science of risk management from ways that they can treat fuels and mitigate risks to helping communities assess and mitigate risk and be more resilient,” says Thomas C. Dzomba, Deputy Program Manager and Director of the Fire Modeling Institute. Understanding the underlying causes of wildfires enables us to control them better over the long haul. Enhancing fire science With a primary goal of enhancing fire science, the lab also impacts operational fire response One element is climate change, which has created conditions prone to wildfires by increasing heat, changing rain and snow patterns, and shifting plant communities. But there are also other contributing factors in the growing scale and intensity of wildfires. One is the condition of the forests in Australia, California, and other areas where the incidence of wildfires has increased. In California, for example, it is well known that the forests are unhealthy and in need of more prescribed burns and other thinning efforts. On the front line of turning data into useful information to advance fire science is the WIFIRE Lab at the University of California San Diego. The WIFIRE lab grew out of a project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). With a primary goal of enhancing fire science, the lab also impacts operational fire response, increasingly in real time. Wildfire risk monitoring The tragic Camp Fire in November 2018, which burned for 17 days in Butte County, near the city of Paradise, Calif., has prompted research to improve risk management and monitoring of wildfires in the future. The vision of the research is ‘a computational platform for multi-level wildfire risk assessment.’ The researchers seek to redefine wildfire risk monitoring and management to provide a platform that can be used by wildfire managers, emergency responders and utility companies to plan for, respond to, and mitigate the risk of wildfires. In Australia, new resources are addressing the growth of wildfires. Preventing and controlling wildfires Andrew and Nicola Forrest have committed 50 million Australian dollars (US$35 million) to the Fire and Flood Resilience initiative through Minderoo Foundation, with a goal of raising an additional 450 million (US$320 million) in direct or in-kind support over the life of the program. The goal of the ambitious investment is to make Australia the pioneer in fire and flood resistance by the year 2025 The goal of the ambitious investment is to make Australia the pioneer in fire and flood resistance by the year 2025. It is an audacious vision that requires an innovative approach, and the organization takes inspiration from the U.S. Apollo mission of the 1960s. In effect, it will be a ‘moonshot’ to advance the cause of preventing and controlling wildfires. Specifically, the first mission, Fire Shield, seeks to ensure no dangerous bushfire in Australia will burn longer than an hour by 2025. Local fire departments The biggest risk of property damage and injury from wildfires comes at the wildland-urban interface (WUI), which is defined as areas where structures and the built environment begin to intermingle with wildland vegetation. More and more such areas are being created as humans move near wildland areas to take advantage of their natural beauty and privacy. The ‘Ready, Set, Go! (RSG!)’ Program works to increase engagement by local fire departments with residents that live in areas at risk of wildland fires. A program of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), ‘Ready, Set, Go!’ offers the tools and resources for fire departments to provide more understanding of the risk of wildland fires and the actions residents should take to reduce the risk.

2020回顾:塑造消防行业未来的技术
2020回顾:塑造消防行业未来的技术

技术与创新正在塑造消防行业的未来。在2020年期间,TheBigredGuide.com发布了许多触及研究,开发和新技术的文章。此综述将审查一些最受欢迎的文章,包括与原始内容的链接。热成像和增强现实(AR)结合热成像和增强现实(AR)使消防员能够通过烟雾来看,实际上在威胁危及火灾的危及生命环境中提高他们的视力。AR能力可以在连接到头盔的遮阳板中部署,并且固定的热相机捕获图像。这种产品的最新原型是一种强大的头盔设计,可承受粗糙的处理。该系统还包括增强热图像以使消防员能够更清楚地看到物体轮廓的软件处理,从而在该领域中启用他们的检测。岩石山脉研究站(RMRS)在Missoula Missoula的岩石山研究站(RMRS)的消防研究计划,通过改善决定消防员安全区和逃生路线,改善和现代化火灾危险的测定,增强了消防员安全。开发野火安全评估员(明智)和野生鱼类等系统和应用,以促进野外消防员使用这些指标。该计划还开创了场景规划和评估对社区的野火风险的指标的发展。 Internet of Things (IoT) The Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding the variety of technical capabilities deployed in the interest of public safety, and smart cities are leveraging IoT data to provide insights and improve operations. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is promoting technology development through its Science and Technology Directorate’s SCITI (pronounced “city”) solutions lab. SCITI stands for Smart City and Internet of Things Innovation. Crowd Management & Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) has developed a computerized tool to provide data Crowd management can be critical in a fire emergency – or in almost any other emergency situation. The Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) has undertaken a project to develop a computerized tool to provide data and situational awareness about crowds based on computer vision analysis of the video. Crowds have become an unusual occurrence during the COVID-19 pandemic, but sooner or later, life will be returning to normal. When it does, the safety consequences of poor crowd management will again become top-of-mind for many in the emergency response fields. Complexity Of GPS Coordinates A solution to address the complexity of GPS coordinates in an emergency situation, “what3words” is an easy way to identify precise locations using a unique combination of three words. The benefits of what3words for fire and emergency services agencies are already being realized. what3words addresses are shorter, easier to understand over the phone, and built-in error prevention technology allows emergency services to immediately verify the location and correct mistakes. Drones For Firefighting And Fire Prevention Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are expanding their usefulness in the arenas of firefighting and fire prevention, whether in a downtown business district or in fire-prone wildlands. Among other benefits, drones can provide situational awareness, guide emergency response, and perform dangerous duties while keeping fire personnel safe. Drones provide a new solution for extinguishing fires in high-rise buildings, which can occur beyond the reach of fire nozzles and rescue ladders. Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning Students and faculty at Hongik University are developing AI and machine learning (ML) algorithms The fire service worldwide collects a lot of data, and a university in Seoul, South Korea, is researching how to crunch the numbers using artificial intelligence (AI) to predict the probability of fires more accurately and to direct fire departments’ assets where they will do the most good. Students and faculty at Hongik University are developing AI and machine learning (ML) algorithms into a model that can predict the probability of fires and enable authorities to take action to make the city safer. The project has used the Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio, a Web portal for data scientist developers. The researchers ran various ML modules until they were able to predict fires with 90% accuracy. Firefighters Health Wellness, mental toughness, and psychological self-care for firefighters are available in the palms of their hands; in a smart phone app. Fire and police agencies can provide their officers access to these and other self-help tools in an app that reflects each agency’s identity and design choices. Employees can be assured that the use of the app is totally confidential. Tracking Exposure Tracking firefighters’ exposure to smoke and cancer-causing materials is important when it comes to assessing liability claims, worker's compensation, and coverage for occupational health claims. Tracking and documenting exposure data for firefighters is easier than ever using the National Fire Operations Reporting System (NFORS) Exposure Tracker App, developed by the International Public Safety Data Institute (IPSDI) as part of the NFORS Analytics Data System.

A social media toolkit contains content that a department can easily share on Twitter, Facebook or other social media channels. Content may be copied or customized to reach any audience. Messages from the U.S. Fire Administration that departments can share on social media platforms include: The top three days of the year for home candle fires are Christmas, New Year’s Day, and New Year’s Eve. Residents should only use decorations that are flame-retardant or not flammable. Holiday lights should be checked each year for frayed wires or excessive wear. A limit of three strands of holiday lights should be linked. Burning candles should not be left unattended. Battery-operated flameless candles are a safer alternative. Christmas trees should be kept away from heat sources and room exits. Watering a Christmas tree daily keeps it from becoming dry and flammable. Care is required to ensure that the festivities of the season do not come at a cost of lost property and/or lives Care is required to ensure that the festivities of the season do not come at a cost of lost property and/or lives. Fire prevention can lessen the burden on firefighters during a season when spending time with family is at a premium. The sadness of a fire tragedy, especially during the holiday season, can be unbearable. The holiday season is also an appropriate time to acknowledge the hard work that departments and other fire professionals dedicate to preventing and fighting fires. We at TheBigRedGuide.com salute the work of the fire service and the fire industry to keep residents and businesses safe from fire and other emergencies, both during the holiday season and throughout the year. Happy holidays to all our readers, and we look forward to providing even more useful information on our site in 2021.
