NIST Researcher Named Fire Service Instructor of the Year

Daniel Madrzykowski of the National Institute of Standards and Technology was named George D. Post Instructor of the Year for 2009 by the International Society of Fire Service Instructors and Fire Engineering.

Madrzykowski was recognized for his work to improve firefighter safety through research, education, and training. He is a leader in applying science to firefighting operations, specifically his research on the application of fire dynamics tools, and applying this scientific knowledge to save the lives of firefighters. He also studies firefighter line-of-duty deaths to help establish the root causes of an incident in an effort to learn lessons that will improve life safety and prevent future losses.

Madrzykowski was presented the award for transferring his knowledge and experience to the classroom. He has delivered fire dynamics programs across the country and has developed a variety of training discs to put these lessons in the hands of fire company officers and instructors worldwide. Madrzykowski's newest DVD program is on his recently completed wind driven fire research. More information is available at www.fire.gov.
