Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I'm confident our department isn't alone, but how many departments have to deal with that mutual aid department that knows everything?

They arrive on scene wearing Superman capes and teach you how to fight fire. Set up ventilation. Salvage and overhaul. They may even try to take command.

They may run 4 or 5 fires a year, but the only thing they know is this.

You're doing it wrong.

At the end of the day, you know how your department trains, works and understands accountability and the command structure.

A lot of departments in our state get caught up in ego and who is better than who. Let's face it. We all have egos to some degree, but we also know our strengths and weaknesses.

Every department should feel like they're the best.

In the end, it's all about preserving life and property. We're here to serve our communities and help those in need. It's about the calling, not the fight.

I think some have lost focus of the vision.

Keep training, keep growing and keep getting better!
