I congratulate the ISFSI membership and their leadership for supplying us all with their Position Statement.
This statement is what the fire service of needs! We can no longer train and educate firefighters based on personal experiences only. The fire service is changing each and every day as it has since its inception. There is not room for those who won't change to meet today’s fireground needs. We must embrace this new knowledge and begin applying it on the fireround.
As I have said and will say again. No two fires are the same. No two tactical plans are the same. There are no absolutes and very few always on the fireground. Therefore the "new" recommendations are not a one size fits every fire. However, if you are a firefighter, company officer, chief officer or fire service educator you must begin training firefighters and/or adapting your tactics to meet the challenges of today’s fires.
Take a few minutes to read the below press release from ISFSI as it will save lives and reduces fireground injuries!
