"What you showed me isn't in the book. What are the Chiefs gonna say if I do this? Are you gonna have my back if I do this and someone says something?" This is a real quote from a firefighter at a recent training
Are we so worried about book knowledge and pieces of paper that we fail to learn the real life application of our job? As an instructor and a fire officer, one of the "hurdles" I have encountered is that people have FF1, FF2, a cape and a "S" on their chest. However, when they pull up with fire blowing, they don't know whether to stretch a line or go fetal. Safety is more than just a buzz word, a sticker on a helmet or a program. True safety is grassroots, its hands-on and its continuous.
