Firefighter Safety vs. Citizen Outcome

Thursday, April 27
The tactics of the first-in company are squarely at the intersection of firefighter safety, department policy, training, and citizen need. This class will discuss how our profession has arrived at a place where firefighters are having to navigate competing interests to prioritize tactics in a way that promises the public their best opportunity at a positive outcome. It will talk about gaining a tactical advantage through preparation and how to increase operational tempo and will provide actionable takeaways to immediately apply on your crew.
