IDHS District 1 Fire Training and ISFSI Presents:

Principles of Modern Fire Attack- SLICE-RS

Saturday March 21st, 2015

St. Mary’s Hospital-Auditorium

8am-5pm

You must Register at ISFSI.org to attend

https://netforum.avectra.com/eweb/shopping/shopping.aspx?cart=0&site=isfsi

                                                             

The 8-hour PMFA: SLICE-RS class is open to all chief officers, instructors, company officers and firefighters, introducing modern fire behavior and changes to the fire attack within the profession based on research findings. This class is a pre-requisite for the 4-hour PMFA: Train the Trainer course.

The 4-hour PMFA: Train the Trainer class complies the best lessons learned from the fire dynamics research to provide fire instructors the necessary resources they need to adjust department policies, tactics and training to create a safer environment for their departments and communities.

 

This class will provide a firsthand look at the UL/NIST Modern Fire Behavior/Dynamics studies and show instructors how they can be delivered and instituted in their fire departments. Controversial to some so be prepared for some great discussion, but in the end, no one can argue with the numbers and the studies – these will change how the ENTIRE fire service operates… Students will also be provided at the end of class with all materials necessary to deliver this at home! You don’t have to look far for good discussion regarding fire command, control, accountability and especially…..fire behavior. The info from NIST, UL, ISFSI, IAFC and others is another tool, options, for your fireground. We need to apply it as needed – based upon our size up. Don’t throw your other tools (tactics, procedures etc) away-add this updated information to do what’s best for the people having the fire and the members fighting the fire. If we can end up less hurt or killed-(them and us) – that’s a good thing-but fire operations are risky-and sometimes we must take risks to take care of people. Worthy risks. Not predictable risks. MANY departments have trained their firefighters officers to consider a hard hit as they prepare to go in. Most departments have adjusted some attack guidelines based upon conditions. But it’s all about understanding the expected consequences of our actions and focusing on what’s best for the people having the fire.

2015 Fire Instructor In-Service

&

Courage to Be Safe Seminar

 

The Northwest Indiana Fire Training Council- District 1 is pleased to offer the 2015 Fire Instructor In-Service with Chief John Buckman of the Indiana State Fire Marshal’s office as the keynote speaker.  Chief Buckman will discuss current training standards and an overview of current events from the Fire Marshal’s Office.

The afternoon session of the seminar will feature the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s program “Courage to Be Safe” taught by Christopher Huston of firetrainingtoolbox.com.

Courage to Be Safe Program:  Firefighters must have the courage to face a multitude of risks in order to save lives and protect their communities. Their courage allows them to willingly risk their own lives so that others can be saved. A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks and tragic consequences.

This provocative and moving presentation is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence. Building on the untold story of LODD survivors, it reveals how family members must live with the consequences of a firefighter death and provides a focus on the need for firefighters and officers to change fundamental attitudes and behaviors in order to prevent line of duty deaths. The central theme promotes the courage to do the right thing in order to protect yourself and other firefighters and ensure that "Everyone Goes Home" at the end of the day.
