Size-up: What Firefighters and Officers Need to Know - $300

A two hour classroom presentation.

This is an excellent class for experienced veterans and young firefighters alike. We recognize the decline in "run of the mill" incidents and an increase in evermore challenging and “different” types of calls.  Refresh the memory of officers and teach your bench how to make effective size-ups and ensure the rapid delivery of valuable information to commanders with this interactive presentation.


Elevator Incidents: Do You Respond to Elevator Calls, or Can Elevators Impact Your Operations? - $300

A two hour classroom presentation.

More and more elevators are being installed throughout our fire districts. Make sure your team knows when, and if necessary, how to remove stranded passengers. Do they know when and how to use (or not use) elevators during fire conditions? If they have questions, this class is for you.

Mayday Training for Incident Commanders 

This 3 hour classroom presentation teaches Incident Commanders how to prepare for a Mayday before it happens, how to conduct operations during a Mayday and what processes must be completed following the Mayday.  The course reviews the roles of commanders, dispatchers, EMS, RIT/RIC/FAST team officers and fire-ground officers.  The tools for effective Mayday commanders are reviewed, including radio systems, standardization of acronyms, RIT/RIC/FAST deployment, and the continuation of fire-ground operations. The presentation includes a segment on how to assist the family of downed personnel.  Pertinent NFPA standards are referenced, as is the National Incident Management System.  The course concludes with an interactive class review of two significant Mayday operations.

Guns and Ammunition Involved in Fire

This is a two hour classroom presentation dealing with guns and ammunition involved in structure fires, vehicle fires and unusual circumstances, such as military ordinances.  The class deals with the concerns that many firefighters have with weapons and ammunition stored by law abiding citizens and those who misuse these items. The class explains how the firefighter should react and the process whereby incident commanders can develop actions plans to deal with these concerns.

Dealing With Solar Panels 

This is a two hour class dealing with an up and coming technology.  Your agency likely has no experience with these installations at all.  But you will!  The course provides information on roof and ground mounted units.  It explains the issues of weight, roof access, ventilation and conductivity when these units are roof mounted.    Current codes are addressed and you will be prepared for upcoming code changes that will help emergency services.

Mass Casualty Incidents

This is a three hour class dealing with the NUTS AND BOLTS of such incidents. This no nonsense presentation explores the realities of these incidents and covers duties for the first arriving responder all the way up to those who must implement a command structure. Topics include; calling for the help that will be needed, action planning, resource management, field assignments, triage, transplort, paperwork and stress debriefing of responders.
