About this event:

Friday, March 18th, 2022: 1300-1600

"Secrets, A**holes, & Love": This highly interactive course takes a look at the secrets for a long and successful career, how to deal with difficult people (The A**holes), staying engaged with your career, and how to love the job.

Saturday, March 19th, 2022: 0900-1200 & 1300-1600

- "Make Training Great Again": The fire service preaches “safety” at every turn, we have at times become so safety-focused, we have forgotten to be mission focused. This course looks at the importance of training, how to conduct company drills and how to maintain long term training programs. This class not only provides practical ideas to make training a priority but will motivate members to get out and train.

- "Situational Awareness; Reality Lessons": This course takes an honest approach to how easily we can lose our situational awareness and how this can lead to a firefighter's line of duty death or near miss. This program utilizes case studies, actual radio traffic, images, and open conversations about the importance of gaining and maintaining our situational awareness throughout the incident. During the case studies, students will learn directly from the instructor who served as the incident commander during a near-miss incident and a LODD where the instructor served as one of the investigating officers. Students are provided the opportunity to ask questions about the decision-making process that directly led to one firefighter being killed and one member being trapped for over 15 minutes.
