FSTAR

Through FSTAR, the IAFC develops tools to help fire departments operate based on scientific research. We provide a single point of access to fire service research through a searchable database. We translate research into short, concise, readily applicable featured studies, fact sheets, infographics and other tools.

FSTAR is funded by a Fire Prevention and Safety grant award from FEMA'S AFG Program.
