Fire Officers Guide to Modern Fireground Management

ID : 5050   
« back to classes page
Your crew is dispatched to a working fire in a single-family structure and you are the first officer on scene. It’s unknown whether there are occupants still inside. What would you do?

Our number one job as first responders is to save lives and protect property. Fire officers are required to make critical decisions with very little information in a few seconds and the approach to managing modern firegrounds is constantly evolving. In this class, you will learn from three safety officers with over 100 years of experience. They will share their knowledge and experiences in development and implementation of a department-wide fireground safety program.

The instructors will discuss tactics that can be implemented and carried out by any size/type fire department. They will share an aggressive approach to initial scene size up (360), tactics with focus on risk management, safety officer responsibilities, rapid intervention and scene accountability. Students will review and discuss tactical reports from near-miss situations and learn what was done to prevent these situations from happening again. Actual fireground video from a safety officer’s perspective will be shared to help reinforce the topics covered. This class is designed for all ranks in the fire service from firefighter to department chief.
