Here is a look at the San Bernardino City Fire Department in action. This video clip was used as a part of a department wide training program to develop a better working relationship between Company & Chief Officers.
It is really important for Chief Officers to never forget where they came from and to be reminded of the difficulties that companies are faced with out on the fire ground. It is equally as important for the Company Officers to have an understanding of what goes on "Inside the Command Post.
The goal of the training was to develop that much needed communication and common philosophy out on the fire ground and throughout the entire fire department. This has been a work in progress and will never really have a completion date. Older firefighters retire and go out the back door and the rookies continue to come through the front door. The goal is to help and properly develop the right mindset before one makes it to the rank of company or chief officer.
Hope you enjoy it!
