Where firefighters come to talk training

FDIC: HOT Workshop:

25 to Survive:

 The Residential Building Fire

Monday 4/22 8am-12 Room: 238-239


***Soon to be released as a book from PennWell Publishing*** 

More firefighters are seriously injured and killed while operating at residential building fires than at any other building type we encounter. This presentation will address 25 critical firefighting issues common to the residential building.  While these 25 topics are not an exhaustive and comprehensive list, they are repeatedly noted in many 'near miss reports', National Institute Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommendations and Line of Duty Deaths (LODD's).

Join Capt. Dan Shaw and Lt. Doug Mitchell as they identify these 25 prevalent topics and give you tactical tips, techniques and drills to give US the advantage in these critical areas.  You will be able to bring back more than just what you 'heard' in class.  This program's mission is twofold; it’s for citizens in the communities we serve, and for those entrusted to their safety, firefighters and fire officers. This mission will have immediate impact and lead to an increase in efficiency and effectiveness on fireground operations. 

The program has 4 key segments:  Combat Ready, Developing the Mastery of Firefighting, Engine Company Operations and Truck Company Operations.

The inherent dangers in residential building fires reinforces the need for all firefighters from the probie to the Chief to have a thorough knowledge of these buildings.  And, a sound understanding of how our efforts effect fire conditions throughout them...

We hope to see you there on Monday!
