Fireground search…remember the basics…find and control the fire and search for any victims. The only way to develop the skills is to practice them under realistic conditions. We’ve got a few spots left in October… Attend some realistic fireground training at the beginning of the month, and the haunted house at the end of the month!

Here’s a ground ladder training session that provides not only ladder basics but also fireground decision making. It’s simple and easy to set up — find a building with multiple windows, on multiple floors if possible, and put a couple victims in the windows. Start the crew from a staged position where they can’t see the victims. As they come around they’ll have to make decisions on who to go after first and what ladders to use. Give it a try!
