House Fires: The Core Competencies

Monday, April 24
The challenges of managing a house fire can be unique for volunteer, combination, and career firefighters; however, the underlying themes are the same. Today's house fires are time-sensitive events that challenge the fire department's ability to perform with effectiveness and efficiency. This workshop is a guide to better prepare students to achieve a safe, effective, aggressive fire attack and search at house fires. Additionally, students will identify methods they can use in their organization to coordinate fireground tasks to achieve desired outcomes on the fireground.
