Gaining the Tactical Advantage

8 September 2015

Employing scientific principles and training strategies, this class provides a template to increase efficiency, mental awareness, visual processing, and overall scene safety. The objective is to boost performance, both skills related and task/movement efficiency, to far higher levels and then hone them in various environments, making you faster, more precise, and ultimately far more capable in performance when it counts. The emphasis is on training for the game of life, where the knowledge and skills learned in training will one day translate over to the streets, determining life or death.


Clearing the Air: What Do You Get for “30 Minutes”?

3 September 2015

Critical decisions are made on the fireground, on the training ground, and in the boardroom based on “air.” How much air is still available? How much air has been consumed? How do we train firefighters to be critically aware of their air? How much air do we need to provide to keep our members safe? Recent research is shedding new light on this subject. The class covers the effects of working in self-contained breathing apparatus on the human body in terms of heat stress and its impact on injury risk and a firefighter’s ability to do the job on the fireground. The audience will see new data on how a firefighter’s physical abilities change with the second air cylinder and how this can be related to a firefighter’s preparation for the job. The tradeoffs between 30-minute and 60-minute bottles are also covered.

Cardiovascular and Carcinogenic Hazards of Modern Firefighting

30 June 2015

This project addresses the most important health concerns of firefighters and does so in a way that ensures that the results are “directly” applicable to firefighters.  Keeping with our team’s long standing tradition of dissemination, and leveraging an extensive network of fire service collaborators, we will distribute our findings to those who need it and can implement it, including standard setting bodies (i.e, NFPA 1500, 1582, 1584, 1851, 1971), policy makers, training academies, fire officers and firefighters.
