FF285 - Fire Service Communications
Time & Location
About the Event
Firefighters depend on a functional communications system. These systems are comprised of public safety communications centers, radio towers, base radios, portable radios and mobile radios. The communications system is the link between dispatchers, incident commanders and firefighters. This infrastructure is crucial to support efficient, effective on scene operations and ensure that basic day-to-day functions are completed within an organization. This class will cover the communications center facility and their operations, how both emergency and non-emergency calls are handled through these centers. It will also cover fire service radio systems and how to effectively use two-way radios as a tool for communicating. Students will receive classroom training as well as hands-on training using the ICS system.
