FF281 - Tactical Decision Making
Time & Location
About the Event
Tactical decision making is designed to expand fire ground skills in 4 learning modules: fire service statistics and fire science, leadership and the incident command system, a table top exercise(s), and a final exam. The first module briefly introduces students to fire service injury statistics with an emphasis on mishap reduction, the hazards of smoke, the science of fire, and conditions leading to building collapse. Module 2 is a thought provoking approach to personal leadership, incident command system structure, and the strategies and tactics for a successful incident. Module 3 wraps-up with a group table top exercise specifically chosen to reinforce modules 1 and 2. The exercise ends with a debriefing and sample of reporting procedures. A 20-question final exam is designed to reinforce the learning experience.
