Mastering Fireground Command 2-Day Simulator & Hands-On Workshop

The Marin County Training Officers Present Calm the Chaos! Mastering Fireground Command 2-Day Simulator & Hands-On Workshop

Today’s fireground should be a calm and orchestrated event, but often it is not! The NIOSH top 5 line of duty death operational causes on the fireground surround size up, command, communications, accountability and SOP's.

Participate in simulations and hands-on drills for house fires, garden/center hall apartments, commercial fire incidents and review actual inside-the-command-post incident video and audio to get answers to the following questions...

  • How do I set clear tactical objectives, have clear communications and establish command presence on my fires?
  • How do I create a personal system that blends all of my classes, certifications, SOP’s, ICS, and tactical fundamentals into a simple, street-smart and effective way?
  • What’s the difference between size ups and arrival reports and how do I become better at both?
  • What are the trigger points and safety issues of Offensive, Defensive and Combination strategies?
  • What are the key points to Rescue, Exposures, Confinement, Extinguishment, Overhaul, Ventilation and Salvage?
  • What is the real difference between RECEO-VS and SLICE-RS?
  • How do I really use ICS day-to-day and get beyond "checking the boxes"?
  • How do we get SOP’s/SOG’s working in my department?
  • When do we call an audible on the SOP’s? 
  • What could hurt me or my crew tonight?
  • What do changes in construction and fire behavior mean to modern-day tactics and command?
  • What are the implications of the latest NIST and UL studies regarding flow path?
