dispatches teams to the receiving countries to demonstrate and provide the necessary information to safely and effectively use the donated gear.
The term [[rho].sub.f] [[lambda].sub.f], which was taken as 2199 kg x W/[m.sup.4] x K and which functions only as a multiplier of both k' and k" in the IFRM, will influence the best-fit values of k' and k", but not how well the model fits the [[??].sub.fo] data.
The best fit of the IFRM was achieved by means of a nonlinear least squares regression with respect to [[??].sub.fo] of the 84 data points, using the Levenberg-Marquardt method to perform the non-linear curve-fitting.
Significant improvement of the IFRM curve-fit was obtained by introducing the multiplier [aT.sup.b.sub.s] into the denominator of the expression for [k.sub.a] given by Equation (19).
With its headquarters in Minnesota, IFRM has recently established a collection and distribution hub in the St.
“This donation is extremely generous,” said Ryan Ruckel, IFRM's regional coordinator for Missouri and Illinois.
IFRM continuously seeks donations of used fire and EMS equipment from departments all over the United States.
standards, yet has plenty of service life left — to firefighters in developing countries, IFRM dispatches a team to train those firefighters on the gear's safe and proper use.
"Chief Plunkett will make IFRM's teams more organized and more effective while abroad."
Chief Plunkett said he sought out IFRM because of the growing need for reliable firefighting equipment and training around the world as well as the success IFRM has had in that arena.
IFRM then dispatches teams to the receiving countries to demonstrate and provide the necessary information to safely and effectively use the donated gear.
