Topic: “The Fire Sim Lab – Module 2: Setting Up Command.” (90-minute webinar)
Monday, June 1, 2020 – 10:AM PST
Description: Learn and apply the critical elements of setting up command, including how to stay ahead of the incident power curve, decentralize your command, utilize ICS in the street for maximum effectiveness and prevent the NIOSH 5 from destroying your incident. These skills are critical to every incident or assessment center simulation.
This brand new, dynamic, and interactive webinar will help both aspiring and current officers by giving you sets and reps of fire simulations. This is the second of a new series called “The Fire Sim Lab” where students will participate in fireground simulations for homes, duplexes, fourplexes, townhomes, garden and center hall apartments, big box, strip mall, commercial and mayday fires.
Topic: “The Fire Simulation Lab – Module 1: Size Up” (1-hour webinar)
Description: Learn and apply the critical elements of size up and how every successful fire, or simulation, depends upon size up. These skills are critical to every incident or assessment center simulation.
Join Battalion Chief Anthony Kastros, author of the Fire Engineering best seller, Mastering the Fire Service Assessment Center, and Mastering Fireground Command – Calm the Chaos! He will take you through multiple simulations in which you will improve and test your skills. This is a new, one-of-kind, hands-on, interactive webinar designed to help you promote, or get better at your current job!
Topic: “Aggressive Command to Prevent the NIOSH 5 LODD Factors (1-hour webinar)”
Description: The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has established the long-standing trend of causal factors that result in line-of-duty deaths.
We call them the NIOSH 5. They are ineffective or improper:
SOG’s to failure to follow SOG’s
If you have had a fire that resulted in near miss, injury, mayday or fatalities to your firefighters, then chances are, the NIOSH 5 were present.
This webinar will discuss how to set up proactive incident command that gets ahead of the incident, allows for aggressive tactics, yet prevents the deadly NIOSH 5 from coming into alignment on your fires. The result is more safe, effective and efficient fireground operations. Whether career or volunteer, testing for promotion, or a seasoned officer, this is a dynamic webinar you cannot miss!
