HOT: When Seconds Count - Residential Search

The mission of the fire service is to save lives and we must be prepared. To be effective we must train in realistic conditions and at full speed. This class will provide attendees with the knowledge of “why” based on actual data collected from the Firefighter Rescue Survey. Utilizing this data, we have been able to train accordingly. The attendees will learn foundational skills in order to be fast and efficient when searching. Attendees will learn victim drags that are proven effective and give our victims the best chance for survival. The attendees will put all of this together for scenario-based drills under realistic conditions in West Licking Fire District’s training house. The house is a 1,500sq-ft Cape Cod with a walkout full basement. The house is set up similar to a residential structure you’d find within many department-run areas. It is fully furnished with bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom. This learning environment is critical to providing realistic training. Visibility will be limited with smoke generators, victims will be a mixture of real people and rescue manikins, and the scenarios will be exactly like you might find yourself in on the street.
