Contrary to popular belief, Command and Control does not extinguish fires or bring emergencies under control. A very bold statement. However, Command and Control serves an important function at all fires and emergencies. This class will engage the participants in a discussion on just what the incident commander's role is and how experience plays a significant part in the process. The important aspect of mutual trust between incident commanders and their company officers and firefighters will be thoroughly discussed and how trust is a key ingredient to success. The outcome is not the most important part of the command process. The process is what is most important to understand.
