The Grab Analysis

Wednesday, April 17
Classroom Session

This class focuses on four separate documented/video-recorded rescues, two of which the instructor has been directly involved with. Learn what worked and what did not work, tactics and strategies for success, command lessons that are applicable to any battalion level commander, as well as how our firehouse culture and preparation play into a successful outcome in emergencies. Success in these incidents was not because of luck but rather because of a cultures of proactive training and preparation. This class will improve your performance on the fireground and leadership in the firehouse. This is a unique view of operations, leadership, and experience from a suburban, minimum-staffed fire department perspective.
