I have just started a project with the Albuquerque Fire Department to get a command training center up and running and to update and revise the firefighting tactics course for command and company officers. The first few topics I will be working on are building construction, fire dynamics and tactical ventilation. I would be happy to share these programs with you along with the rest of the course as I get it completed.
In Albuquerque we use the Fire Command system developed by retired Phoenix Fire Chief Alan Brunacini. I have several classes that have animated fire scenes that we use for teching the basic 8 functions of command. I could send you a disk with the classes. My training philosophy is that students learn by doing and these scenarios give the students a chance to size-up incidents, assume command, recognize critical factors and deploy initial companies. Send me your mailing adress so I can send you a disk. If you like the information and the way it's presented we can keep adding on to the program.
