Description

Course Description:

Utilizing a simple framework that allows you to build on your experiences, and those of others, you can develop an intuitive approach that grows with you throughout your career.

The goal is to create a framework of 3 varying profiles:

  • Rescue

  • Building

  • Fire

These profiles allow you to keep focused on your decisions and give you the ability to draw on what you’ve learned and react to changes in the dynamic fire environment. The course provides an intuitive learning model that expands as you use it and gain more experience.

For those with limited fireground experience, it will help to jump-start their knowledge base and give them framework to evaluate more effectively right from the start. The Go/No-Go decision is among the most critical you will ever make. This training seeks to help you make the best decisions possible.
