advanced fire ground operations
Are you ready to learn what “doing more with less” really means?
The Henry County Fire Department is proud to present an 8-hour “Advanced Fire Ground Operations with Live Fire and All Hands Rescue Operations” class. This course is designed from the perspective of engine companies that are typically staffed with minimal personnel. If you want to take a class that will cover multiple techniques and put them into play with live fire, then this is your class. This course will challenge you both mentally and physically throughout the morning training sessions and the afternoon real-time live fire ground drills which will encompass: seat assignments and duties, size-up, V.E.S., forcible entry, hose stretch variations, fire attack techniques, ventilation practices, and search & rescue. All afternoon evolutions will incorporate safe, live fire drills, an active Incident Command system, as well as a designated safety officer. Each section will be taught by veteran members of the fire service with experience in performing in low-staffing response systems. Students will be provided with radios, thermal imagers, flashlights, and several fire apparatus to complete the real time drills.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Bunker gear, helmet, gloves, mask
INSTRUCTOR: Richie LeCroy, Rodney Wiggins and Ben Patterson, Henry County Fire Department
