Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Training is supposed to be training right? What do you want out of training? I can certainly tell you what I want out of training: the opportunity to learn something new or refresh skills/knowledge. Sometimes it seems like training officers come up with topics because they like them or want to learn more about that area of knowledge. Walk-arounds and building inspections are one of the most valuable training topics which I learned from a District Chief I used to work with at another department. You can choose almost any multi-family, business or industrial complex make quick arrangements to walk around which often leads into discussions about rig placement, knox box locations, FAP locations and general tactics and strategies, AND remember the truck goes to the front of the building, first engine is attack, secong is water supply and the "Truck goes to the roof!" When you have the opportunity to come up with training topics please take the opportunity to make it valuable to you and your crew. Go and do something you haven't done in a while or go somewhere you have never been to check it out, especially buildings under construction to see whats underneath/behind the drywall.
