*CONTROLLING THE CHAOS- Company Officers and Incident Command Managing the Incident

 

“The fireground can be a dynamic and chaotic event.  This class gives students the tools and concepts needed by company officers and incident commanders to control the chaos and manage the incident.  The students will learn the concepts in the classroom and be able to apply them in live fire scenarios.  Concepts include: fire behavior, size-up (reading the building and the fire), incident command, and accountability, setting incident priorities, rig placement and line selection.  The class is co-instructed by a Battalion Chief and Lieutenant.  Students have the opportunity to learn from both perspectives on the fire ground.

*Engine Company: First Line IN

            Sponsored by Walworth County Firefighter Association

It’s all about creating the most efficient & most effective tool on the fireground – the Engine Company. Students rotate through realistic hand line stretch scenarios and gain as understanding of the usefulness/limitations of pre-connect and static loads. Loads and stretches reinforce pre-entry operation principles, discipline and also work as attack/back-up teams and provide experience and problem solving for pinch areas. Students will engage in fold/deploy/stretch hose packs and function as members of attack team working through nozzle, backup, door control and officer positions under live fire conditions.

*Hands-on Ag Rescue

o   Instructed by members of the MABAS Division 17 Technical Rescue Team and Monroe Fire Department

We all live and work in the Midwest and the largest industry is still agriculture.  That means many of our emergency responses will be to those farms/facilities and involve neighbors or friends, young and old.

This class will introduce students to some of the high risk/low frequency incidents that First Responders may respond to.  Students will participate in scenarios outlining basic response guidelines in Grain bins/Confined Spaces, Farm Implement Extrication and associated Safety Guidelines.

Saturday Classes 8 hrs

*Basic Engine Operations Class.

First engine on the scene, now what to do, what line are you going to stretch… how to determine which line to pull with limited manning. This class will go over myth and reality. Stretching lines, fire attack and search. It will all start off slow and get more intense as the day goes ending with live fire attack. 

*Small Town Operations/Limited Staffing

                Sponsored by YAK-ATTACK Innovations & Training

The focus is on what to do when you arrive first due and have less than the optimal staffing and how to adapt to the situation by employing new methods for functioning safely and effectively on today’s modern fireground. Students will rotate through a multitude of situations so that everyone gets as understanding of limited manpower operation. Props that have created will provide realistic operation, along with realistic scenarios that incorporates limited manpower operations working under live fire conditions. First Line & Transitional Attack, Forcible Entry, Ladder, Ventilation, and Search (hoarder house).
