Fire is Smoke and Gas (Video Parts 1 & 2)

While home sick from work today, I was channel surfing the local cable stations, and stopped when I found a compelling fire safety video concerning the dangers of smoke inhalation during a house fire.

I’ve seen a number of fire safety videos, but none as well done as this one. It was so good I actually watched it through to the end to see if I could find out who had produced it to see if it was available online.

With a little bit of help from Google, I found an announcement at the website of the Uniformed Firefighters Association (UFA) of Greater New York that has a great deal of background on the documentary. Apparently the series was produced by retired Emmy Award winning science journalist Dr. Frank Field with the help of a grant from the MetLife Foundation.

I also found that someone has uploaded the episode I watched to YouTube in two parts (part 1, part 2) - I’ve embeded them below.

It’s realistic, accurate, compelling, dramatic, and incredibly informative.

The complete collection of “Fire Is…” fire safety videos is also available for purchase at Amazon.com.
