Learning from Others' Experiences

Wednesday, April 26
This class focuses on dramatic videos and photos depicting moments captured on the fireground that illustrate how firefighters' aggressive actions can lead to danger and interfere with the task at hand, leaving firefighters at risk for injury or death. Topics include fire scene incident command, safety and accountability, vehicle placement and operations, hoseline placement, the use of portable ladders, building construction, water supply, and search and rescue. Also discussed will be officer development covering strategy and tactics, radio communications, and fire department policies and procedures and best practices.
