Course Description

This class is designed to include every member of the fire service organization. Fire Ground Management or Incident Command is often thought to be targeted at Chief and Company level officers. This 12-hour class provides every participant with a working knowledge of "hands on" incident management with time tested management principles and an emphasis on workable communication skills. The first four hours deal with strategic and tactical priorities. The remainder of class provides the student experience in working as a command or company level officer in simulated fire ground activity. Delivery is best suited for back-to-back dates of instruction but can be arranged in 4-hour increments.
