PRE-CONFERENCE COURSE: Initial IC Competence: Reps are Required
Date & Time
Wednesday, October 9, 2019, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
For many firefighters and fire officers, structure fires are a low-frequency, high-risk response. Quickly and effectively assessing incident conditions, developing a plan of action, and communicating strategy, tactics, and tasks as the initial incident commander (IC) requires consistent deliberate practice. This workshop focuses on developing participants skills as the initial IC during the first 10-minutes of incident operations and provides a framework for continuous improvement. Attendees will be provided with workshop materials, including 52 case studies with links to Google Maps, aerial photography, street view, and incident video to extend learning beyond the workshop.
