Hello to all, I have been recentley asked to start handling my department training. Of course it is like every department you have some that feel the need to train and some that don't. I am looking to make training something that everyone is fired up and wanting to do. I have recieved a fair amount of training from a department out of my county and from the Ga. Fire Academy and I feel like I try to be a sponge and absorb eveything that I can. I am looking at putting together a 3 or 4 man training committee to come up with us a quarterly schedule and I was wandering what everyone thought and if I could get some ideas on different types of training that your departments do. We are a combination department made up of 4 paid firefighters and 15 volunteers. We run on average about 600 calls a year. Any help to try and make a difference would be greatly appreciated. Our biggest issues are of course training, getting people to wear their turnout gear all the time, and the ICS System.
