Buildings are equipped with fire protection systems for many reasons. Most fire protection systems are water-based, whether sprinkler or standpipe, and they work best when fire departments operate effectively in conjunction with them. With that in mind, one of the most important things fire departments can do on the fireground is locate and connect to the fire department connection s FDC immediately upon arrival. And will the system extinguish the fire or simply control it while firefighters complete extinguishment?

The Fire Department Connection, also commonly known as the siamese connection, is an important component found on most sprinkler and standpipe systems.
A fire department connection FDC includes one or more fire hose inlet connections on a sprinkler system, standpipe system, or other water-based suppression system. The hose inlet connections enable the fire department or fire brigade to hook up hose lines from one or more pumpers and feed water into the system to supplement the connected automatic water supply Figure 5. In manual dry standpipe systems, FDCs are the only water supply.
This week I want to show you how to do a foundation double crochet FDC. You may have heard some buzz about foundation stitches aka chainless foundation stitches lately and there is a good reason why — Foundation stitches create your base chain and your first row of stitches for your project at the same time. Foundation stitches have more stretch than working into chains and tend to look tidier because it is easier to maintain tension throughout your first row.
During this residency Tineke van Hilten joined me to help out with creating a wearable. In this report, I address the various things that I worked on by theme, rather than in chronological order. For biometric sensing, I wanted to try out how to detect breathing and heart rate.
