Big City Thinking For Small Town Firefighters

In this four hour class, we will discuss four areas of the fire service. In part one we discuss the basics. The basics include discussions on training and leadership. In part two we discuss and in depth look at scene size up. The components of a good scene size up are broken down in this interactive portion, which includes classroom participation and and scene size up practice. In part three we do a quick discussion of strategies and tactics. This is a quick, down and dirty look at strategies and tactics of today’s fire service.
