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.
