The Engine Company: Firefighting in Contemporary Times

Thursday, April 27
This class will discuss structural fires and fireground operations in terms of fire service history and culture, changes in our profession throughout the past few decades, company fireground operations (engine operations and truck/ladder operations and how they should work together in coordinated fire attack), and fire behavior. The emphasis is on principles and practices that the American fire service has employed for decades with good success. These basics give firefighters/fire departments increased efficiency, attack capabilities, and firefighter safety.
Jeff Shupe, Firefighter (Ret.) - Cleveland (OH) Fire Department
