Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Are you ready for the MAYDAY? whether in command or as a company officer/firefighter, we must practice our mental approach and involve scenarios in the classroom that enables members to go through the event mentally not just the physical rescue knowledge such as R.I.T. operations. If you are an incident commander, search out audio from MAYDAY events and utilize the same simulation exercises you train your members on size up for the mental approach to our worse case scenario on the fireground.

Don't run away and think it will never happen, train and be prepared!

Here is an example scenario for you to utilize, be safe.
