EXPLORER-CADET FIELD TRAINING : 8 Hours
Student Fee: Class specific
This is a 1-day “Down and Dirty” Fire Service Youth training activity, introducing youth to hands-on firefighting skills. This “Down and Dirty” training will provide departments a safe training environment, under state fire academy instructor supervision, that will focus on the same basic firefighting skills that are provided in the IFSI Cornerstone Training program for firefighters statewide. Topics will include; Fire Hose and Appliances, Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus, Search and Rescue, Ladders, Forcible Entry and Hand Tools. While not addressing all, training will use the Illinois OSFM Basic FF objectives as the training guide.
