Where’s the Cavalry? Training on Fire Response with Limited Staffing

The Firefighters Support Foundation’s (FSF) newest training program is now available. Where’s the Cavalry? Initial Management of a Structure Fire with Limited Manpower address the problems of volunteer and combination departments that, of necessity, often have skeleton crews initially responding to fires. Whether these initial responders arrive with apparatus or not, there are useful tasks that they can perform until additional apparatus and personnel arrive.

The program consists of a 30-minute video presentation and an accompanying 31-slide PowerPoint. The program is presented by combination department Chief Scott Alderman, a past president of the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association.

The program is free to all members of public safety and  emergency management agencies. Simply view in the player below, or click HERE for the PPT and for the video.
