Course Description

"Saving Our Own" is a nationally recognized program to help firefighters escape from situations that have cost other firefighters their lives. Initial classroom emphasis addresses how to keep our firefighters from getting into trouble in the first place. We look at case studies of actual firefighter fatalities, and make suggestions on how to handle or prevent similar situations. Controlling fire ground emergencies, and Rapid Intervention Teams are discussed, but the focus is on non-complex, single firefighter rescue techniques. Simple techniques for rescuing trapped firefighters, using basic equipment readily available at all fires, are demonstrated and practiced. This intense three-day seminar is also available in a condensed 2-day format on contract.
