We have made our way back to instruction. Many firefighters recieve bad information, either from a poorly informed instructor at the academy or from something they read or hear about. It is fine for a non fire experienced instructor to teach certain subjects to student firefighters. The subjects taught should not put a firefighter in danger. However all of us have read articles and seen instructors who never answered a call teaching fire tactics. This is wrong! These are the same people who take a bit from here and there and mix it all together and tell you they have a new "Safer" approach. Penciling has left the flashover chamber and made its way to main street thanks to the misinformed.
Only you can prevent penciling!
