FDIC 2014 Preview: Skills, Drills, and Tips for Company Officers

Oklahoma City (OK) Fire Department Major Brian Arnold has a preview of his FDIC 2014 classroom, “Skills, Drills, and Tips for Company Officers.”

Company officers, training officers, and all responsible for delivering training to firefighters will leave with many ideas to take home to their departments. Specific examples of a variety of drills that will get the most out of a training session are presented, such as hoseline stretches, driver training, aerial operations, truck company operations, search and rescue, and rapid intervention team operations. Hot topic ideas for current trends within the fire service are identified, discussed, and verified with  data from the National Institute of Standards and Technology and fire fatality incidents. New drills and tips are included along with a few favorites from presentations of previous years.
