Fire Research You Can Use at

In 2008, the FIRE.GOV website will be expanding to provide even more training materials, videos, fire reconstructions, and research reports that may be of interest to the fire service.  The FIRE.GOV electronic newsletter will still be an important part of the website.

Currently, many videos, fire reconstructions and reports are available on the NIST Building and Fire Research Laboratory website,, but the materials are scattered and not always easy to locate.  We plan to expand the content of the FIRE.GOV website to include a section for current research projects, a featured fire test series, and web pages where you can download or order videos and reports.  We believe this will make it easier for the fire service to access the available resources related to fire fighting.
