No Excuses: Tactics for the Understaffed Department
Date & Time
Saturday, July 25, 2020, 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Many fire departments are understaffed, but that is no excuse not to be prepared. If you have items such as thermal imaging cameras, piercing nozzles, and high-flow/low-pressure hoselines, you must use them to their fullest potential. The presenter will discuss building a tactical playbook for your response. Just as a quarterback will read a defense to ensure the play called meets the situation, your playbook sets expectations but allows responders to pick the best tactic or “play” for the current conditions. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of how to develop tactical options that fit in the context of the understaffed department.
