Program Abstract

Pick, pack, and ship warehouse operations have been revolutionized by Top-Loading Automatic Storage and Retrieval Systems (TL-ASRS), which use robots and extensive stacks of bins containing goods to store and retrieve items to fill orders. This program introduces the viewer to TL-ASRS, covering what they are, how they work, fire hazards associated with them, fire protection systems to mitigate those fire hazards, preplanning to respond to TL-ASRS facilities, and fire department operations at TL-ASRS facilities.

Additional training is available on the FM Global Fire Service Learning Network on Fighting Fire in Sprinklered Buildings.
