When Seconds Count, We Count Seconds

Fire Chief Howard Rinewalt, East Montgomery County TX Fire Department

This lecture, instructed by Fire Chief Howard Rinewalt of the East Montgomery County Fire Department (TX), is about the most important factor we all use but can’t get back, time. More specifically the act of saving time in the application of shaving seconds. This is obtained through Force Multipliers, hose load selection, time sensitive assignments, and equipment setup and deployment. All of these topics will be covered and methods to test them to decide what is best for your demographic.

He brings a naturalistic approach to decision making that’s needed to make aggressive command decisions. In the aggressive command leads to successful outcomes, members will be given aggressive tactics with built in safety measures. Decisions on the fireground are made quickly, Chief Davis gives his insight on making these decisions and how he trains to have safety features built into all operations. Attendees will be given insight on back up lines, where and when to place them, discussion of different types of ventilation and hose line placement to protect occupants.

Talks with a Vet

Retired Captain Clifford Reed, City of Houston TX Fire Department

Around 1978, a captain in the Houston (TX) Fire Department was looking at fire behavior and bunker gear. He noticed that the only place we didn’t have bunker gear was our heads. He noticed troops getting burns around their face pieces and that, although it was rumored our ears were nature’s version of the “pop-up thermometer,” the captain, knowing they were mostly cartilage, thought otherwise. Captain Reed is the inventor of the Reed Fire Hood and will discuss events leading up to, the process, and why he created the reed fire hood.
