Size Up and Command on the Fireground

ID : 4782   
« back to classes page
A three-day course where attendees will review and enforce the important items that will allow the fireground to become clearer, this is an outstanding class for any rank and experienced officer whether full or part time large or small department. Each attendee will also receive a simulation of a fire in an actual residential or commercial building from their specific town or fire protection district to take back and share upon their return. Class material will also be available for download via a cloud base program. This class is also available for department outreach via BG Fire School.
