Improving Fireground Performance and Resilience

You and your crew are dispatched to a multi-unit dwelling with a reported fire on the second floor. As you arrive, your incident commander does the size-up and tells your crew to pull a hoseline and prepare for a fire attack. The driver immediately works to establish a water source as you and your partner pull a hoseline to the front door. As you begin your task, there are a lot of things to consider—what size line, how much hose you will need, what obstacles you will encounter, etc. The one thing that often isn’t considered is the amount of energy and the fitness level required to carry out the task of fire attack. One of the most physically demanding things a firefighter must do is advance a charged hoseline, on-air, under extreme stress. How do we train for this event? And how do we know we are physically and mentally ready? This seminar will focus on the physical and mental preparation needed to perform better on (and off) the fireground. Attendees will learn the six essential components that every firefighter needs to incorporate into their training to ensure positive outcomes on the fireground. And the seminar will give examples of how to incorporate them into drills, workouts, and everyday situations. This seminar is a must-attend for any firefighter, company officer, and/or chief who wants to improve physical and mental performance on and off the fire/rescue scene.
