Incident Safety on the Modern-Day Fireground

This interactive presentation will cover the importance of understanding fire dynamics and the modern-day tactics needed to rapidly search and extinguish the fire while keeping our members safe. We will focus on the company officers ability to recognize conditions as they appear upon arrival and how they dramatically change with the introduction of ventilation. Intellectual size-up as opposed to emotional size-up will assist us in changing the culture of how we do business. Attendees will have the opportunity to review and discuss their ability to read smoke, read buildings, read people, read risk, and forecast events. Fireground safety is and should always be our top priority. An emphasis on understanding the importance of the responsibility that we take as company officers or Incident commanders as we lead our people into the hostile environment. Risk has a first and a last name and we should understand everything we can when we make critical decisions during incidents.
