What is an incident commander (IC) seeing, thinking, and feeling when supervising a fire operation? Tactics may vary at various incidents, but the one constant is the IC’s thought process. This interactive class is geared to illustrate key points in preparation, size-up. fireground decision-making, and communications. Videos, case studies, actual fireground radio transmissions, and interactive fire simulations are used to present the challenges inherent in making rapid emergency decisions. Attendees are offered tools to help them perform a skillful size-up, communicate effectively, and project control over chaotic emergency incidents.
