Mastering Fireground Command - Calm the Chaos

Monday, April 24
The workshop will go inside the command post with new footage and radio traffic of multiple incidents, including live rescues, fatalities, Maydays, and multi-building fires. Dialogue between the incident commander (IC) and other officers inside the command post will be analyzed. Helmet camera footage is also used from the same incidents to link the command post and company (strategic/tactical/task levels). Situational awareness and true aggression from the IC down to the lowest senior firefighter on the fireground will be emphasized and discussed. This workshop is full of new incident command post videos, bone-chilling radio traffic, and behind-the-scenes lessons learned from fires and rescues in apartments, homes, and motels and focuses on what went right.
