MFI Radio Podcast Show Host Is Looking To Interview A Fire Fighters To Discuss Collapsing I Joist Or Open Web Floors During Rescue
The Newest Most Cost Effective Solid Class A Fire Treated EWP Floors Shows Up In Honor Of Those Fire Fighters That Lost There Lives In Floor Collapse Is Getting Ready For National Distribution
As a former TJI tech rep we taught builders and framers how fast I joist could roll in multiple continuous spans. Our new Class A Safe Joist can roll in multi spans up to 48’ straighter with no crown.
I’m looking for a Fire Fighters that would like to join me as a guest on my podcast as we talk about all those floors that have collapsed during rescue.
I’m 45 years in wood framing and lumber and before I retire I’m out to make all wood framed building safer in fire even mass timber.
A common building material found in homes all over the US may present a potential danger if it catches fire. The material is an engineered wood I-joist. National researchers have linked the joists to the deaths of firefighters. In one loss Deputy Chief Steve Smith of Tippecanoe County died after the floor beneath him collapsed in a burning home. His partner that day, Bryce Baskett, said the floor was very hot and they knew it was
Firefighters are taught that — to survive — they must "know the enemy." Attorney Cy Gerde calls the engineered wood “the enemy.” He studied the Smith case as the lawyer for the Tippecanoe County town of Shadeland. The town passed an ordinance regulating the use of the material because its firefighters, near Wea Township, had personal concerns about Smith’s death.
Join me tomorrow at 6pm EST on MFI Red Zone Podcast as we talk about defending buildings from fire during construction from Arson attacks that are happening at an alarming rate all around the USA.
