Most fire officers and chiefs will fight more fires in the station then they will out in the streets. This program will utilize basic fireground terminology to break down and make sense of employee coaching, counseling and disciplinary procedures. The presenter will also focus on using fire prevention, education, pre-planning and fire behavior recognition training (reading smoke) to prevent fires (problems) and keep them small. The presenters will also compare hostile fire events, such as rapid-fire progression, flashover, backdraft and smoke explosions, to the more difficult personnel issues. The course will conclude with several “fire simulations” using video and role-player scenarios.
