10 takeaways from UL’s FSRI lithium-ion battery symposium

Lithium-ion battery-related incidents are the biggest topic in the fire service today. If you follow battery-related incidents in the news, it seems these batteries are causing fires in e-mobility devices, consumer electronics and electric vehicles every day across the country.

On March 30, the District of Columbia Fire and EMS Department (DCFEMS) and UL's Fire Safety Research Institute (FSRI) co-hosted a full-day symposium for fire service members interested in learning more about lithium-ion battery risks during fire incidents. Approximately 300 people attended the event at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Alexandria, Virginia, to listen to fire safety researchers and fire service operational experts speak about the hazards that lithium-ion batteries pose to firefighters. The symposium was also streamed live to over 2,500 viewers.
