Nozzle Forward Class will be Aug 10th and 11th of 2016 
Then Aaron will add a Live Fire class day on Aug 12th, where you the student will put it all together under live fire condition and fire attack using everything you just learned. 

Lead Instructor: Aaron Fields, Seattle Washington FD Eng 28

The one thing that every fire department in the country has is fire hose. The one event that happens on every single fire is a hose-line gets pulled and water gets flowed. The Nozzle Forward is a class for engine company crews. It is not a collection of technique; it is an adaptable system of hose line management and fire attack. It is focused around fighting fire, interior offensive firefighting, aggressive firefighting, for which we will never apologize. Aggressive firefighting is not the problem, it is the solution.

For today’s nozzle-person, the art of hose and fire suppression often has been obscured and put to the side in favor of other “hot topic” training. How to attack fire and move the line has been ignored and forgotten by many engine companies. “The fire goes as the first line goes,” so Go Dog Go.

It is the ongoing development of an in-depth study of all things engine. It is not a “what if” class, it is a program designed to engrain the nozzle team to make the right choice and be able to accomplish whatever task is necessary for a successful interior attack. It is not theory; it is proven on fire-grounds around the country. Adapted from a variety of sources, but reconstructed to be based around simple principles that maximize mechanical advantage.

The class answers the “whys,” not just the “what’s,” and quickly creates a system that can be adapted to fit any engine company from the urban to the rural.

The goal of the “The Nozzle Forward” is to help craft more efficient Engine Companies by increasing the individuals’ competency with their tools and expanding on the conceptual aspects of the fire environment.

The course will integrate the three major components of engine company work; fire behavior, hose management, and fire attack.

The class is 20 hours over two days, all but 2 ½ -3 are hands on.

Now let’s go do good work…

This year Fire School will start on Wednesday the 10th and Thursday the 11th with the class listed above. Nozzle Forward is a class that fills up anywhere it goes and has been a big hit at FDIC the last few years with amazing reviews so don't miss this one Brothers and Sisters.
