Starting with an interactive discussion focusing on how the attendees arrived at being “Command Capable” the instructors will concentrate on presenting a top ten list of the most critical operational elements necessary to establish, sustain, and command a safe and effective fire suppression operation. Topics to be discussed include size-up, decision making, command structure, building construction, communications, accountability, and strategy and tactics. This class is open to current fire officers and any firefighter who may take on the responsibility of sitting in the front officer’s seat of their apparatus!
