We are excited to announce that two of our EQUIP fire protection engineering interns have passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination and are officially Engineers-In-Training (EIT). Congratulations Curtis Fagan and Zelda Zhao on your big accomplishment. The EIT credential is an important stepping stone in an engineer's journey to professional licensing. We applaud your hard work. We are also thrilled to welcome two new students, Etienne Jackson and Siriwipa Kamma, into the EQUIP program. Etienne and Siri are both senior year students studying fire protection engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park.

FireTox was engaged to assist the National Research Council of Canada in evaluating the effectiveness of procedures used to remove AFFF and associated PFAS contaminates from aircraft rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) vehicles. The project included a review of Department of National Defence (DND) trial protocols, sampling and analysis of foam and rinse effluent, and ecotoxicity evaluation. We applaud the NRC and DND for making the report open source so that others may benefit from the findings. The full report can be accessed at the following link:

Our employees work hard every day to improve fire safety in our world. Part of this effort includes obtaining certifications that equip our talented engineers with even more knowledge, skills, and abilities to achieve our mission. We'd like to formally congratulate senior fire protection engineer, Brendan McCarrick on obtaining his NAFI Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator credential.
