Today at 4:30 pm, AEI Corporation will be holding a live burn as the inaugural “Flashover Fridays” event. This burn will simulate a kitchen fire occurring as the result of heating oil being left unattended on a stove top. The burn cell has been set up with kitchen cabinets, a range, kitchen table, appliances, an overstuffed chair and vinyl flooring with a throw rug. Test equipment has been built into the burn cell and the AEI engineers will be utilizing that research data to continue being on the leading edge of fire science.
Those attending will get to learn about fire behavior in a safe and casual environment. We’re pleased that several members of a few metro Denver area fire departments will also be able to join us, and we’ll have plenty of BBQ and cold drinks for everyone.
We are expecting a great turn out and looking forward to seeing everyone who has registered for the event. We have lots of indoor and covered seating, so don’t let the weather scare you off. We are ready to roll, come rain or shine.
