Glenn Corbett, Jack J. Murphy, and Jerry Tracy recently sat down to discuss the challenges of firefighting in high-rise buildings.
The talk, made possible by the Christian Regenhard Center for Emergency Response Studies, is based on the forthcoming book by Murphy, Tracy, and James Murtagh: High-Rise Buildings: Understanding the Vertical Challenges. The book will be published by Fire Engineering Books & Videos.
High-rise buildings remain the defining feature of urban areas, and even 20 years after 9/11, challenges remain in fire and life safety. This book, the product of experienced high-rise firefighting experts and high-rise emergency planners, promises to be a defining text in the field.
