Today I wanted to take a few minutes and ask how much and how often does everyone get to train in their fire house? I know me being a new firefighter seeing new things and learning new ways to get the job done more effective and safer makes everyday a learning experience. I have been lucky enough to have family and fellow firefighters show me early on the importance of training. I think all of us rookies and veterans should all have the mind set to train everyday because what we learn today may save us, a patient or fellow firefighter tomorrow. So I guess my question is really a three part question. How much, how often and how effective is you’re fire houses training methods? Any imput ideas or new drills and/or methods would be great.
Also to add something really quickly here is another question I have. Does you’re department have a PT routine that has to be done and if so what does that in tale?
