Light-emitting diodes (LED) are quickly becoming more efficient than the familiar incandescent light bulb or florescent tube. NFPA's Fred Durso had the chance to interview John Bullough, of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Lighting Research Center, on his upcoming presentation at SUPDET 2013.

Bullough has been looking into LEDs as emergency signaling lighting. Specifically, he’s been experimenting with the intensity of the light and the duration of the light bursts, and how those impact their effectiveness. To find out how LEDs can be applied in both emergency safety and everyday operations, watch the full interview below.
