Where firefighters come to talk training

Training on the basics is vital to our fire ground operations. The basics must be converted to muscle memory. Often we over the look the importance of the not so basic skills. These are skills we don’t use on a daily basis, most likely on a monthly basis. Think about the operations we don’t perform often like:

 

Drafting

METRO incidents

Rope rescue (horizontal and vertical)

Air bag and cribbing

Vent Enter Search

Bangor Ladder

Mass Decon

Self-Rescue

 

All skills are perishable we need to be well versed in any skill the public calls us to perform. When you make your next training schedule add the above to the mix. Trying to cobble a rescue on the scene of an emergency is not the time to play catch up. Some of the above skills have a high degree of danger to us, as well as the public. Remember be proactive not reactive when it comes to training and emergency incidents.
