Discussion topic for the day, inspired by this firehouse.com article about engineers developing a flashover detection device that could give firefighters a 20 to 30 second warning when interior conditions are worsening. What are implications for firefighters as technology develops? And what are your feelings therein about what's gained in tools versus what might be lost in skills? Draw from the experience of the introduction of thermal imaging cameras as needed. What say you?
