Description

The Mid-Willamette Fire Officer Development Institute hosts Safety in the Fire Service, presented by Deputy Chief Todd Keathley.

Course Description:
The presentation will involve an in depth evaluation of Respiratory Protection, Fire Behavior and the Changing Fire Environment.

During this presentation Chief Keathley will share the findings of his research and emphasize the need for immediate changes in our approach to today's fire environment. He will discuss the ever increasing volatility of the atmosphere we face and the need for modification to our current strategies and tactics.
