ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issues concerning the amount of heat which radio handsets and other fire fighting equipment can take. The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Fire Research Laboratory has conducted two studies to provide data for the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). According to the first study, the researchers have developed a system to classify different thermal conditions. Meanwhile, the second research focuses on handheld portable radios.
